Viewers Note:
Below are some scans from 1929 issues of the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph newspaper's "Color Gravure" sections.  Some displays ran the full width/length of the newspaper and required "double scanning and combining" soas to create the full images. For the most part I captured the artwork almost in its entirety as best as possible. In all cases I attempted to include the artists' signatures and collection source. Some pages edges were crumbled and/or torn away. This is NOT an attempt to plaguerize anybody else's work, these reproductions DO NOT belong to me. This is my attempt to share some published historical artwork and a few septia-toned photos. Enjoy!
