In the early days of Duluth the poor people who lived South of Superior Street were known as “fish eaters”. Because fish were plentiful and inexpensive it was a very big part of their diet, and it was an honor to be called that. The rich folk could eat whatever they wanted but for the poor the saying went “eat fish or snowballs.” The fish business was one of the earliest in the city.
