1908 “Greater Pittsburg” Photo Book with a Full-Page Photo of Exposition Park.







      
Lot 449. 1908 “Greater Pittsburg” Photo Book with a Full-Page Photo of Exposition Park. Before PNC Park, Three Rivers Stadium and Forbes Field, the Pittsburgh Pirates played at Exposition Park. They began playing there in 1882 when they were known as the Alleghenys, and the park remained their home until the opening of Forbes Field in 1909. This 8” x 10” book presents black & white photos highlighting the sights of greater Pittsburgh on 48 pages. The Exposition Park photo, taken from the outfield, shows a game in progress as fans watch from the grandstands. A caption below the photo tells readers that “Pittsburgh enjoys an enviable record in the world of sport. The city is represented by a clever team of expert base ball players, three times champion of the National League.” Other photos in the publication, from L. H. Nelson Co. of Portland, ME, show city buildings, steel mills, river barge traffic, schools, churches, bridges, residences, Carnegie Libraries and structures in nearby Braddock, McKeesport and Uniontown. A two-page center spread provides a panoramic view of Schenley Park. Three folios at the center of the softcover book are separated for the staples. Otherwise, the book is complete and intact with a g cover with several relatively heavy creases and vg+ to ex pages. Winning Bid $61.
