Description

This is Downtown Pittsburgh, the Monongahela River, and Southside as seen from what is now called McArdle Roadway, on the slopes of Mt. Washington.

I'm not sure of the year this photograph was taken. Perhaps 1929? If you know, please email me.

At left is the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad (P&LERR) station, which later became Station Square and the Grand Concourse restaurant.

This photograph was provided by Miriam Meislik and Ed Galloway of the Archives Service Center, University Library, University of Pittsburgh. www.library.pitt.edu/libraries/archives/archives.html Will open in a new tab or window
A project by Dror Yaron, Randy Sargent, and Paul Heckbert hopes to re-photograph this scene from the same viewpoint for a before-after comparison. Click on "View in Google Earth" link to compare a more modern view!
