New Image Collections Added to Historic Pittsburgh

We added two new image collections to Historic Pittsburgh from the Library & Archives at the Heinz History Center. The Montefiore Hospital Photographs (161 images) show hospital buildings, physicians, nurses, interns, and student nurses in both formal groups and work settings between 1890-1988. The William V. Winans, Jr. Photograph Collection (141 images) visually document the construction of the Civic Arena (later known as Mellon Arena) between 1958-1961 by Dick Corporation.
