Pictorial Section Extracts

September 28, 1924

The following photos were scanned from an old yellowing and crumbling "Pictorial Section" of
The Pittsburgh Press (a defunct newspaper), 
dated September 28, 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.


(For larger or better views you can save these images to your computer by placing your mouse over the desired photo,
do a right click, then left click on "Save Image As", then left click on SAVE. Open the photo(s) in your graphic software
and click on the magnifying glass icon to enlarge the image to your liking.)

  Some viewers of these webpages were children on September 28, 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 other photos "of the day",
then a series of yesteryears business advertisements which were scannable.  Enjoy!
