Harbor History Documentary
The story of the Duluth-Superior Harbor is long and colorful. It begins with the geologic forces that formed the natural harbor, and continues today with the engineering marvels that persist in reshaping the face of our working waterfront. “Harbor History” is a big story- in turns dramatic, tragic, funny, and fascinating. It is a tale of Native Americans, explorers, traders, and immigrants - political maneuvering, economic ups and downs, huge opportunities, maritime industry, and gargantuan building projects. Our story is illustrated with rare old drawings, maps, photographs, and archival film. “Harbor History” is a delightful documentary about challenge, inspiration, and triumph. It is a worthy addition to the videotape library of any history buff.
