Arrowhead Bridge
Posted December 26, 2015, by William Kearns (wkearns [at] columbus [dot] rr [dot] com)

In the 1950's my grandparents lived in Superior and I had an uncle, aunt, and cousin in Duluth. When we visited for a couple of weeks in the summer (we lived in Ohio), we'd cross the Arrowhead Bridge. It was cool because of the curves - very pretty at night, especially. I don't remember the drawbridge being open very much.
