Revealed: Duluth Alphabet


  Here's the whole twist...

Duluth Alphabet

What happened here!  Many things have gone amiss within the Zenith City of the Unsalted Seas.  This nickname was given to Duluth during a July 4th picnic in 1868 by Dr. Thomas Preston Foster, the founder of Duluth's first newspaper.  

In 1855 Duluth became the only port with access to both the Pacific (via railroads) and the Atlantic (as a result of the opening of the canal at Sault Ste. Marie that year).  Soon the lumber industry, mining and railroads were booming and Duluth experienced numerous changes as a rapid influx of workers entered the area and storefronts seemed to pop up overnight. 

Within Duluth Alphabet artist Samantha Nielsen takes us on a journey through this port town highlighting popular destinations as well as some locally known gems.  Were you able to find the 26+ differences between the puzzle you assembled and the box image?
