Points in Time: Building a Life in Western Pennsylvania Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Western Pennsylvania is a product of its geography — the rivers, the Allegheny mountains, and the resources within. The story of its people is recalled here, from the Whiskey Rebellion, to the "Gateway to the West, " to Carnegie's steel mills, to the recent loss of manufacturing jobs.<P>Personal and business histories combine to tell why Pittsburgh has been the focus of so many important industries and events. Many of the artifacts illustrated are drawn from an accompanying exhibit at the Pittsburgh Regional History Center.

Synopsis:

Points in Time offers a fascinating collection of essays, photographs, and reproductions of material culture to reveal the rich and textured narrative of Pittsburgh's collective urban history. The more than one hundred color and black-and-white illustrations with explanatory text, alongside essays from two leading art historians, are certain to provide both enlightenment and entertainment.
