Pictorial Section Extracts

October 5, 1924

The following photos were scanned from an old yellowing and crumbling "Pictorial Section" of
The Pittsburgh Press (a defunct newspaper), 
dated October 5, 1924. 
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 photographic history of people and places for those of us who came along later in life and whose family members may have appeared within the photos being presented. 
Photos are presented here in greyscale and re-sized for viewing.

  Some viewers of these webpages were children on October 5, 1924, or possibly parents,
therefore I've chosen to show the children's photos first, in no particular order, and I've re-typed the photo captions
beneath each photo for viewer clarity. 
Following the children's photos area you will find photos from "War Vets Reunion '61".
