Long Description:
This bronze marker is placed appropriately at the foot of Duluth’s Aerial Life Bridge. It reads:

“The first lighting was on November 20, 1970, made possible through the contributions of Duluth school children, citizens, business people and visitors.

“The present dramatic lighting, first seen on July 4, 1987, is made possible through a generous gift from the Rotary Club of Duluth, Club #25. It symbolizes the warm welcome extended by Duluth citizens to ships and visitors from around the world.

“Both projects were coordinated by the City of Duluth, which owns and operates the Bridge.”

You will enjoy taking time to go inside and see the nautical displays, and there is a viewing window to watch the ships going through the canal and under the aerial bridge. The arrival of each ship is announced, and they tell the basic facts about the vessel, what it is carrying, where it is going, and when it is expected to arrive.
