Photographer's Note

Historic Towers of Pittsburgh

This photo was a bit inspired by one I posted a year ago: Tall, Taller, Tallest, although the kind of architecture here is of course completely different. It was taken at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Wood Street in downtown Pittsburgh, just after the sun had finally appeared for a while. The area here is called Fourth Avenue Historic District and was the centre of the financial district at the start of the 20th century. The three buildings you see here are all from this era, from left to right: the Arrott Building (1902), the Bank Tower (1902), and the Carlyle (1906).
