ASC Releases More City Photographer Images

The Archives Service Center added over 3,800 new images to the Pittsburgh City Photographer online image collection. This large addition of glass plate negatives (1913-1921) scanned by the ULS Digital Research Library includes images of the development of the Lanpher Reservoir; plans for bridges, bridge ornamentation, and road construction projects featuring street layouts and surrounding industries ; the Tuberculosis Hospital; water treatment plants such as the Aspinwall Pumping Station and the Brilliant Pumping Station; the lowering of the "Hump"; and improvements and street widening of downtown Pittsburgh. This represents the last update of images for the next several months.
