    By chance I found your cache of Pittsburghian treasures, and am ever so thankful.
    Grew up in the smokey wonderland in the fifty and sixties. Admire the new Pittsburgh,
    but loved old Pittsburgh, even with its soot and mystery the best.

    Grew…is that colloquial or just bad grammar?

    My mother & I shopped in Pgh in the late 50s and early 60s. We lived in Ohio and @ once a month would drive the hour and a half to shop in downtown Pgh. The Joseph Horne store was our favorite although we also shopped at Kaufmans & Gimbals. We bought my senior prom gown in a store in the Jenkins Arcade, a building across from Hornes. The Arcade was @ 8 (?) stories tall, open in the middle clear up to the top with stores around the inside of the perimeter! How sad that malls took over the wonderful experience of shopping in “downtown “ Pittsburgh!
