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.

Stadiums, Past and Present

In this neighborhood stood Exhibition Park (home of the Pirates until 1909) and Three Rivers Stadium (Pirates, 1970-2000).

Today PNC Park (Pirates) and Heinz Field (Steelers) are here.

Forbes Field (Pirates, 1909-70, and Steelers 1933-63) was about three miles east of this site.

The view from Monument Hill?

Seems likely.
