Dec. 9, 1928:  "Clearing snow at Schenley Plaza"
When Pittsburgh got its first big snowfall of the season in late 1928, the Pittsburgh Press dutifully sent out a photographer to document efforts to clear the city’s walkways.
We discovered this picture in a folder labeled “Schenley Park.” It was published on a page with several other snow pictures — images of children sledding, and snow-covered trees. The newspaper clipping contains no information about where the picture was shot, but we believe it shows Schenley Plaza, and that the strucure in the background is the Cathedral of Learning, then in the early stages of construction.
