Recollections of old Superior

@ Wisconsin Historical Society

Bertrand, Achille H


Achille Bertrand arrived in Superior with his parents on the Lady Elgin (the same ship that would gain notoriety for its horrific wreck in 1860) in June of 1857, where he remained until 1886. In this reminiscence, written in the 1920s, Bertrand discusses the physical features of the area, as well as Superior's economy, people, politics, and social life.
