[ED: Hardcover/gebunden], [PU: PRC Publishing], Pittsburgh Then and Now Walter C. Kidney 2004 PRC Publishing Zum Buch: Englischer Text: Pittsburgh Then and Now portrays the city through 161 pairs of matching photographs in a unique rephotographic survey. For each location, an archival image was culled from old books, municipal records, or library collections, and then rephotographed in the late 1980s from the same camera position. From eclectic turn-of-the-century architecture to modernist and postmodernist buildings from steel mills to high-technology centers from horse to streetcar to automobile-each pair of photographs reflects how the city has been reinvented, and what has remained the same. Pittsburgh Then and Now is a treasury of photographic images for those who remember the old Pittsburgh, those who are curious about its past, and anyone interested in the evolution of a city.

Pittsburgh Then and Now - new book

ISBN: 9781592231416

ID: 978159223141

Pittsburgh and the surrounding region are home to architectural masterpieces designed by such noted architects as Henry Hobson Richardson, including the Allegheny County courthouse and jail. Some of the most important architectural sites in Pittsburgh include places of worship, such as Trinity Cathedral. The city continues to adapt in order to meet the demands of its residents and the world. In Pittsburgh Then and Now juxtaposes specially-commissioned historic photographs with viewsof the same scenes as they exist today. * Mount Washington is remembered as the vantage point, 400 feet above the Monongahela River, from which the Virginia major of that name spied out the strategic possibilities of the forks of the Ohio River. Now, privately owned, new buildings and public spaces have been added in front of the redbrick Commerce Court.* In 1917, Pittsburghers could see the Allegheny River, the Monongahela, and their formation of the Ohio at the Pittsburgh Point from Mount Washington. The Point is now a park, the old bridges are gone, and the meeting of the rivers is marked by a fountain.* Fifth Avenue looking east from Market Street in 1899, with a typical Victorian mixture of Italianate and indeterminate architectural styles, including a little Gothic, executed mainly in brick and cast iron. A little of the older architecture has survived: the Floyd Building is one of Pittsburgh''s finest examples of the High Victorian Gothic style and the Italianate cast-iron front is one of the oldest commercial structures in the area.* In 1921, looking across Liberty Avenue and northward up Sixth Street from the end of Market Street, one would have seen Rosenbaum''s department store, Pittsburgh Life Building, and Woolworth. Today the central building is Heinz Hall, which reopened in 1971 as the home of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Walter C.
