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.
