    I didn’t know where to post this so I’m doing it here hoping that the moderator will notice.

    I found a photo of Nell Shipman, a Canadian film director of the silent era with what appears to be a bag designed in the Duluth style. Her films were famous for their outdoor action and adventure plots so it’s fitting that she would be photographed with one of these bags. I thought it was fun and I wanted to share.

      Wow, thank you so much for sending that along. We are loving the photo here in Duluth. We are undecided whether it is a Duluth Pack or from one of the many companies that built bags similar to ours. We all think it is one of ours, but not 100% sure. Please feel free to contact me at, I would love to follow up and see if we can track more photos like this one. Thank you again. • Brad
