Charles Richardson Photos Online

We added the Charles Richardson Photographs to Historic Pittsburgh, which capture industrial scenes at Westinghouse in East Pittsburgh and the U.S. Steel Company's Homestead Works, as well as street scenes in the neighborhoods of Downtown, the Hill District, Polish Hill, Squirrel Hill, and the Southside between 1952 and 1954. According to Richardson, only the 46 images presented online were kept over the years, believing they best represented "some of the best days of Pittsburgh."
