The Pittsburgh Press Photo Pictorial Sections
Remnants of Combined Issues From 1927

The following photos were scanned from old yellowing and crumbling "Photo Pictorial Sections" of
The Pittsburgh (PA) Press (a defunct newspaper),  on
various dates from 1927. 
Some photos display a "source" and others do not.
When a source is visible it will be notated for that specific picture.

It is not the intent of this website to plagiarize others work nor to lay claim to such.

This is an attempt to salvage remnants of Pittsburgh's past photographic history of people,
where family members may have appeared within the photos being presented.

Other photos may show places and/or things from this time era.

  Some viewers of these webpages were children in 1927, or possibly parents.
I've re-typed some of the photo captions for viewer clarity.  Enjoy!
