Pittsburgh City Photographer

The Archives Service Center and the Digital Research Library at the University of Pittsburgh have made over 1,200 pictures of Pittsburgh taken by the Pittsburgh City Photographer between 1901 and 1969 available online. Included are views of Pittsburgh parks and recreation facilities, athletic and mayoral events, general street scenes and traffic, as well as interior and exterior shots of familiar Pittsburgh buildings, including some that have been demolished. There are also interesting depictions of home life, and the famous and not so famous people of Pittsburgh. For example, a search on Highland Park retrieves 20 images dating from 1901 - 1968, and includes families at the Childrens' Zoo in the 1960s; various views of the entrance to Highland Park; an early image of the Highland Park Reservoir (1907); and DeLucca's market on Bryant St. It is also possible to search the Pittsburgh City Photographer's Collection along with 26 other image collections at the Historic Pittsburgh Image Collections.
