    Thank you Mr. Mellon for sharing these. Makes me love this city even more.

    Where was Pitt football team practicing in those days? Looks like a pretty dirty drab field. Was this in area of Pitt Stadium?

      Thanks for the response, zl. The PG article from March 26, 1963 simply identifies the location as “Pitt’s practice field,” but we’re guessing it was close to the old Pitt Stadium. Someone more familiar with the history of the area may be able to more accurately tell us where this field was located.
