City of Pittsburgh “Golden Triangle”

Pittsburgh is characterized by the shape of the city’s downtown and majestic skyline known as the Golden Triangle which forms a triangular tract. The Allegheny & Monongahela rivers carve at both sides of the city and converge at the Point to form the Ohio River. Pittsburgh is known as the City of Steel & the City of Bridges.

“Each time I look at your illustrations hanging in my home, I am in awe that you complete these with no more than some ink and a straight edge. The passion you put into each work is evident in the beautiful details. As a former Pittsburgher, looking at your prints bring back many fond memories for me and I have bought several prints for family members who have also moved away so that they can be reminded of their own memories of Pittsburgh. I love seeing your new creations on your website and will be purchasing many more prints for Christmas presents this year. I tell anyone who is looking for a special, yet unique Pittsburgh gift to view your website, and they never go away disappointed. Best wishes for continued success Charles!”

Joseph Horne Co. Christmas Tree

Pittsburgh, PA

The Joseph Horne Co. was an iconic regional department store founded by Joseph Horne. In 1849, Horne’s began operations as the Joseph Horne Co. after he bought the Eaton Co. It became the first department store in the city’s downtown and remained so until the founding of Kaufmann’s in 1871. In 1879, a new seven-story landmark building was built at Penn Avenue and Stanwix Street in downtown Pittsburgh. The lighting of the six-story Christmas tree has been a long held family tradition along with their holiday themed window displays. The tree is still lit annually as part of Pittsburgh’s Light Up Night. Horne’s ceased operation in 1994 after being merged with the Lazarus division of Federated Department Stores Inc. At the time of its closure, it was one of the oldest department stores in the country.

Monongahela Incline

Pittsburgh, PA

The Monongahela Incline located near the Shoppes of Station Square is the oldest continuously operating funicular in the United States as is the nearby Duquesne Incline with its signature red and yellow colors. The incline was built in 1870 by civil engineer, John J. Endres and was used to transport steelworkers and those who worked on the rivers up and down Mt. Washington. Pittsburgh’s expanding industrial base created a huge demand for labor, attracting mainly German immigrants to the region with the surge of immigrants. This created a housing shortage as industry occupied most of the flat lands near the rivers, leaving only the steep hillsides of Mt. Washington, known as “Coal Hill”. Travel between the hills and other areas was hindered by a lack of good roadways. The German immigrants remembered the sielbahns (cable cars) of their former country and proposed the construction of inclines, which at one time numbered seventeen in the city. The incline is still in operation by the Port Authority of Allegheny County who oversees Pittsburgh’s transit system.
