Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle - 1912

The Golden Triangle - 1912

This is Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle in 1912. The old Union Bridge, spanning the Allegheny River from the Point to the North Shore, had recently been demolished. The replacement Manchester Bridge was in the initial stages of construction and would not open for another three years. The original Point Bridge connects the southern shore to the Point, which is dominated by the freight yards of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Exposition Hall complex along the Allegheny riverfront.
