Here's an awesome panorama of Pittsburgh in 1908. So much to look at in this picture!

That is an great photo. I'm continually amazed at how they had the infrastructure and technology to go that high with the buildings in 1908. Wouldn't you like to go back in time and stroll around?

Over on the right side, I wonder what that row of pointed objects is atop the hill off in the distance to the left of Bailey-Farrell.

I'd love to look around and walk along the street in this picture!

I posted that wondering under the photo. Hopefully someone can answer!

Cool! Thanks! Isn't that strange the way they're jammed together like that with nothing but bare ground surrounding them. I wonder if any of those are still there. In fact, I wonder how many of the buildings period in that photo are still there. It would be interesting to see a 2018 photo made from the exact same perspective.
