Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle - 1975

The Golden Triangle 1975

The Golden Triangle shortly after Mayor Pete Flaherty dedicated the new fountain at Point State Park. The Park, and particularly the signature fountain signified the beginning of a new era in the image of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The grand efforts, planned in the 1930s and enacted beginning in the 1950s, included landmark clean air laws and a complete makeover of the city landscape. The day Mayor Flaherty turned on the spigot and the gleaming fountain burst skyward, Pittsburgh's rebirth was complete.
