Jane MacDougall, of Duluth, shared this tidbit with the Eh? desk Friday afternoon from her home in Piedmont Heights.
“While cleaning out the flooded ‘stuff’ in our storage closet, I found an old cardboard box with a newspaper in it. It was the Duluth Herald from Monday, Aug. 21, 1972, with pictures of that flood’s damage,” MacDougall said. “It was a little bittersweet to see the pages of pictures, much of it re-destroyed this week.
“But the newspaper made us smile as we tossed out the wet belongings, including my Duluth Denfeld diploma from 1970.”
