The Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation has posed a challenge to architecture buffs out there.
If you can correctly identify the original and current names of the building that has this detail on it, you could win a year’s membership to the PHLF.
That’ll save you $30.
When I saw this photo, I thought immediately of Tulsa, OK! where I once lived. Having been built as a boom town in the 1920s, it is loaded with Art Deco treasures.
Pittsburgh doesn’t have a lot of Art Deco, so when I see it, I note it. I think I know where this one is and am eager to find out if it’s somewhere other than where I have in mind.
