More P&LE Images to Historic Pittsburgh

The Archives Service Center added 355 more images to its Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Company online collection. These new images (scanned from glass plate negatives) feature infrastructure improvements, such as roundhouse construction and coaling plants. Other images depict worker housing in McKees Rocks; the Carrie Furnace site in Rankin; safety posters from 1919; and work along the L.E. & E.R.R (Lake Erie & Eastern Railroad) routes.
