Maxwell Way, 1947. Guy in a hat measuring something.

What's this guy doing?  Looks like he's measuring a pot hole.  Why, who knows, that's what makes these photos great.  The picture is labelled Maxwell lane, which is a single block street between Larimer & Paulson Aves in Larimer.

#OldBuccos - John Smiley circa 1988

Not sure why the long face on John in this one.  1988 was his breakout year.  He went 13-11 with a 3.25 era, laying the ground work for two All-Star appearances, a 20 win season, a near Cy Young, and a hearty deal from Cinci.

New Office View

My company recently moved to new digs in the Liberty Bank Building in East Liberty.  I stare at history all day long.

Honest NFL Logos

 You should probably check out Honest NFL Logos on Grantland today.

This has (very) little to do with the history of SouthWestern Pa, but it's amusing.

6900 Fifth Avenue 06/16/1948

I believe there is currently a doggy-daycare on this corner.  It's also quite close to that delicious/horrible fried fish and chicken place (Hook?).
