Loop-the-loop

Reminds me of my younger brothers’ Hot Wheels sets in the late sixties.

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!
