Market Square has a lot going on these days, but it had slowed down considerably for awhile. This photo is of Market Square on Market Street just off of Forbes Avenue. You can see the old Dimling’s restaurant in the foreground next to an abandoned storefront, and the Chase Bank (formerly Farmer’s Bank) in the background. In the shadow of gorgeous Mount Washington, this is a beautiful photo capturing the early ruggedness of “The Square”, in downtown Pittsburgh.
This is a beautiful vintage photo of downtown Pittsburgh – back when this city was a rusty, dusty steel mill town. It’s actually quite beautiful now, and this photo does a good job of showing it’s character.
