Trapahagen & Fitzpatrick -- architects of The Lyceum

By the way... the architectural firm of Trapahagen & Fitpatrick designed The Lyceum. (Their name is visible in this photograph -- high on a building about a block away).

The Lyceum Theater of Duluth

The "Lyceum" was built in 1892 for live theater shows, then later converted into a movie-theater. The original interior, shown in this old photograph, had 3 balconies. It was demolished in 1963. (High resolution version of this photograph is available here.)

"Minnesota Monochromes"

Oh, Dave, you are too funny! This Minnesota Monochrome is an interesting contrast to the Minnesota Kodachromes.

Thank you, Dave, tterrace, and all the Shorpyites for another year of outstanding photos, in-depth commentary and research, clever captions, great groaning puns, and good spirits!

Happy holidays!

Traphagen & Fitzpatrick

It amazing what you can learn if you do a little poking around in Shorpy images. I would have never known that Mr. Traphagen designed the Moana Hotel on Waikiki Beach, and they he hailed from Duluth. I have strolled past that hotel and had a few drinks on its veranda overlooking the beach.
