Hauling Iron Ore to Lake Superior Docks



The back of this postcard has the following description (circa 1942):
60% of the iron ore produced in the United States and 25% of the ore mined in world is mined on the Vermilion, Cuyuna, and Mesaba Ranges of Northern Minnesota.

This trainload of iron ore is headed for docks on Lake Superior, where it is transferred to one of the large freighters plying the Great Lakes.
