And another, a view looking down Franklin Ave. The mercantile store is visible in the background. The red pickup truck is parked roughly in front of the nearest building in the 1910 photo.

Interesting that the photgrapher's location in both pictures must've been real close to the same spot. AA, how long have you been doing these photo tours?

For anybody that wants to look, the same site also shows the P&LE station in the same time period.

There are people who say things like that about Pittsburgh.

I remember when I was working in downtown Lansing, Michigan, and being told by a coworker, "Never move to Pittsburgh! I visited there once and had a gun held to my head!"

I've walked through Flint and Detroit. There is not a city in America that scares me, except Cranberry (just a joke).

I think the Mercantile Store is now Seniors Apartments. It still is a sturdy building.
