Duluth, Minnesota Autumn City Skyline Panorama

SKU: DUL1
This aerial panoramic photograph of Duluth was taken by James Blakeway. It features Duluth, located on the shore of Lake Superior, during the autumn leaf color change. On the left of the panorama is Duluth's famous Aerial Lift Bridge. It was first built in 1905 as an aerial transfer bridge with a huge gondola that could carry 60 tons of traffic including people, automobiles and horse drawn wagons. In 1929, the bridge was modified to support a vertical lift bridge to accommodate the increasing population and tourists. The city's harbor welcomes over 1000 freighters annually which can be viewed up close from Duluth's Canal Park.

Duluth, MN Skyline Pictures

The fourth largest city in Minnesota, Duluth skyline pictures showcase a city located on the shore of pristine Lake Superior, an important point of transportation in the Midwest. Perhaps the most renowned item of interest in Duluth skyline pictures is the Aerial Lift Bridge, first built in 1905. It has since been modified to become the bridge visible in Duluth skyline pictures today, allowing vehicles to cross the canal and connecting Canal Park with Minnesota Point. The amount of shipping traffic the city receives is easily seen from viewing any Duluth skyline picture. Over 1,000 freighters enter the city annually, and can be seen at Duluth's Canal Park.

Duluth skyline pictures show a city with a large number of parks and recreational areas, including Canal Park on Park Point, the Lakewalk, Leif Erickson Park, and Brighton Beach Park. Many historic buildings can be spotted in Duluth skyline pictures, especially those of the Glensheen Historic Estate or historic Central High School. The waters of Lake Superior as seen in a Duluth skyline picture also hold hidden mysteries, as many shipwrecks have been buried within over the centuries. Less than a mile outside the Duluth harbor ship canal is the most famous of these wrecks, the Thomas Wilson.

Duluth skyline pictures feature one of the world's longest freshwater baymouth bars and the starting point for many tourists making their way further along Minnesota's North Shore. Many automotive sightseeing tours begin in Duluth, and it's easy to see the city's appeal to the tourism industry from a picturesque Duluth skyline panoramic picture. The city is also a major shipping destination, with the region transporting the Great Lakes' greatest amounts of coal, taconite and grain. Accessible to ocean-going ships from the Atlantic Ocean (over 2,300 miles away), it's understandable why Duluth skyline pictures have adapted over the years to show such a unique city of historical importance and essential transportation.
