HISTORIC PLACES PITT HOTEL BUILDING FROM LATE 1800S, McDONALD PA

 

From Sept 27, 1956 Record-Outlook, McDonald PA
Caption Title on this Black and White Photo Reads: 
"An Architect's Drawing of the Old Pitt Hotel in the Early 1900 Period."

Webmaster's description of the drawing:

The drawing shows the ground level plus 2 floors above, with 2 balcony porches surrounded by white railing and lattice work.  Two white square column-supports go from the second floor to the porch roof.  Rather than being square, rectangular, or semi-circle, the porches appear to be three-sided plus two walls wall of the building (total 5 sides); the porches are built into a corner of the building.  A white staircase leads from the ground level sidewalk to the first porch.  

The building shows several large picture windows on the middle level, with smaller windows throughout the second and third floors.  The middle floor has one window on one side of the building that has a round top (like in churches), and has a one or two person porch outside the window, protected by a white rail.  The same type of window is on the short side of the building. 

The ground level has 3 picture-type windows that begin at the sidewalk; the rest of the long side and the shorter side of the building has double-side-by-side smaller windows.

The corners of the building from street level to roof eaves show intricate layered brick-work.  A color pattern of (probably red?) and white is continued under the eaves.  The building is covered by 2 main pitched roofs, with a flatter side roof toward the rear.

Drawing is signed but hard to read.  Last name is either McCROOKS or CROOKS.

This building still exists, just looks a little different according to Vicki, the researcher who submitted the photo.
