Pittsburgh Vista, 2010

view between buildings on Mt. Washington

Valley Vista

Down and down and down we go, where we stop–the river maybe? Sometimes it seems that way in some of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods. This was taken from Shiloh Street on Mt. Washington, one of the highest points around, and I sometimes wonder how (and why) people managed to build on some of these hillsides, and the buildings are still standing.

I also think of people from years gone by who walked up and down these hills, and horses and mules who hauled people and goods up and down the streets.
