Since I consider Duluth my hometown, it's hard not to love this book. Loved learning and re-learning some of the history of Duluth. It's a great little book to relive the architecture that makes that city very unique. Highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever lived in, visited or plans to visit Duluth.
There are a lot of old, beautiful houses in Duluth that were demolished in the 1900s. A large chunk of beautiful old homes and schools that are left standing have been turned into apartment buildings. It was a quick read, filled with mostly pictures and little descriptions of them.
I grew up in Duluth so I was drawn to this book immediately. Was a revalation to me about how much I didn't know about my home town.
A beautiful book!! Written by my uncle Sheldon. :)
