Over 1,000 More City Photographer Images Added to Online Collection

The Archives Service Center added 1016 new images to the Pittsburgh City Photographer online image collection. These images are part of an effort to digitize delicate glass plate negatives dating from 1901 to approximately 1926. This recent addition documents Bigelow Boulevard, the Boulevard of the Allies, Market Square, and various neighborhoods, playgrounds, and parks dating from 1906-1923. A dozen of these new images include negatives that were recently returned after significant conservation work by Chicago Albumen Works. These images document local businesses, the historical D.P. Reighard House, and the 5th Battalion Mushball Team.
