The Rotary Club, first formed in 1905, is a humanitarian organization that works to spread peace and goodwill around the world; in 1922 the club name was changed to the Rotary International. In 1912 the Rotary National Convention was held in Duluth, Minnesota, and today’s feature image contains club members taking a motor tour around the City.
The lead image contains right-to-left decorated Packard, and Pierce-Arrow touring cars presumably accommodating Club officers at the head of the tour. Notable automobiles in the line up include a second late model Packard behind the first two cars, in the middle of the bridge with an open rear door is a Peerless, the second car behind it may be a Locomobile, along with others further back in the line. This was a well heeled group as only one Model “T” Ford is readily visible.
