    I like your article and it helps bringing memories back that were part of my early experiences. I was born and raised in the berg. 1935 and lived in Dormont. When I was 10 after school I would take the street car to downtown and sell papers in the Oliver building after work A couple of times the elevator operators took me to the the Diamond Market and go roller skateing.
    Then take me home. Being 84 we had a conversation that I mrntioned the Diamond Market and it had the street going thru it
    and I skated on a upper floor. Pics helped
    Retired to Fairhope AL 16 years ago.

    I was raised in Pittsburgh, fondly referred to as the ‘Burgh. In the 1950s we spoke of the building as the New Diamond Market. I remember going skating there and it always smelled like a butcher shop.
    I relocated to Columbus OH, 20 years ago and haven’t thought about that place in years. Thanks for the memories.
