New Old Pittsburgh No.2

Here's another installment of my new favorite hobby.
This view shows a corner just a few blocks down from my house. I love the old photo so much. Look at all that open space back in Friendship. I love the dapper looking gentleman walking in front of the long since vanished row homes on the left. And of course the tiny sliver on the right showing a woman holding a basket dressed head to toe in dark folds of fabric in August of course! But my very favorite part are the two little girls captured in time right in the middle of it all.

I really want to recreate this photo with my little lumpkins someday soon.

Old photo: Pittsburgh City Photographer Collection,
1901-2002, AIS.1971.05, Archives Service Center, University of Pittsburgh
New photo: Google Maps Street View 2010

Wait a minute! There are new apartments on that corner now!
That Google view must be from 2008? Whoa. I definitely need to take a current shot of that corner.
To Be Continued...
