From 150 years of unparalleled thrift : Pittsburgh Sesqui-centennial chronicling a development from a frontier camp to a mighty city; official history and programme (1908)"
The capital and surplus in Pittsburgh banks was greater than the combined capital in the Bank of England, Imperial Bank of Germany, and the Imperial Bank of Russia. Doesn't seem possible...
And the city got an arch for its 150th birthday. All we got for our 250th was this lousy t-shirt. I can't figure out where the Arch was located...Liberty and Fifth (with the Arch on Liberty?)
Then again, this was the view looking down the Ohio from the Point in 1908...is that a casino taking shape on the North Shore?
