Duluth Arena Photos, Part 1

Continuing the News Tribune Attic’s look back at the history of the Duluth Arena, here’s the first of three batches of News Tribune archive photos I’m going post. This gallery covers the period from planning for the Arena-Auditorium complex in the early 1960s through the grand opening in August 1966. Click on the photos for a larger view and for caption information:

More Arena photos will be posted tomorrow and Thursday. If you missed it, I posted a complete 1966 grand opening brochure on Monday.

Plan to pick up a print copy of the News Tribune on Thursday for a 16-page special section all about the new Amsoil Arena.

And, as always, share your Arena and DECC memories by posting a comment.
