About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Schenley Park: 1910

Schenley Park: 1910

Pittsburgh circa 1910. "Schenley Park Bridge and the 'Tick' (Carnegie-Mellon University)." A carnival atmosphere (note loop-the-loop) in the park at right. 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Flag

I just noticed how huge that flag is at the top of the hill in Schenley Park!

Poor Fellows!

Looks like a couple of Gandy Dancers had to work that day and couldn't take part in the festivities.

Maybe the Pirates were on the road

Because the brand new Forbes Field would have been just off-screen left on the other side of this bridge, making this one of the 1910 epicenters of Steel City culture, learning and recreation in more ways than one.

Carnegie Mellon

Carnegie Mellon University was originally Carnegie Technical Schools, then Carnegie Institute of Technology, and finally Carnegie Mellon U when it merged with Mellon Institute of Science in 1967.

This photo brings back a lot of memories of my time at CMU (although not from 1910).

Missing the fun

That rail crew down there is missing all of the fun!
