Pass me My Inhalor!

I can recall driving through Pittsburgh in the late '40s with my parents, and this is often how it looked in the daytime as well.

Smithfield Bridge

This is taken from the Mt Washington side of the Smithfield St bridge (still standing today). These days there's an awful sports bar complex off to the right and Station Square to the left.

Shadows of Architectural Greatness

Toward the right we can see the silhouettes of two Pittsburgh landmarks, facing each other across Grant Street: the spiky tower and broad back of H. H. Richardson's Allegheny County Courthouse (1883-1888), and the broader tower of D. H. Burnham & Co.'s Frick Building (1901-1902). Coolness all around!
