Other than the date – November 1969 – this photo is uncaptioned. Obviously, it shows the Glass Block department store, which was located at the corner of Second Avenue West and Superior Street in downtown Duluth. What’s missing is if this was a special occasion, or just a photo of everyday business and shopping in the weeks before Christmas.
To the left of Glass Block, a number of other storefronts are visible. The first five heading to the left are a shoe store (Baker’s? – the sign is partially covered), Lee Fabrics, Jupiter (anyone know what this store sold?), Woolworth’s and a store with a sign that appears to read "Three Sisters" (I may be wrong). Does anyone want to add in some information or memories from any of those stores?
Below is one more photo of Superior Street in downtown Duluth, also from November 1969:
