Almost 18 months ago, the Post-Gazette launched its photo archive project, “The Digs."
In that time, on “The Digs” we have told and re-told stories about landmarks across Western Pennsylvania, about local personalities such as Porky Chedwick and Mean Joe Greene and covered topics as far ranging as Pittsburgh parking headaches and the North Side’s 1927 gas tank explosion. We hope you have been digging the journey through our region’s history as much as we are.
Still, we’ve been missing a way to help you better explore that history. Since August 2012, we’ve uploaded close to 300 posts on "The Digs." That’s a lot. And without any geographic bearings, it’s easy to get lost.
And so we recently plotted “The Digs.” You can now explore all of our location-based posts in an easy-to-use Google Fusion Tables map. Click here to try it.
