Picturesque Pittsburgh, 1810-1910

Explore the forgotten landscapes of nineteenth-century Pittsburgh through an illustrated journey into four periods that transformed a frontier outpost into the Steel City, from the early 1800s into the dawn of the twentieth century. Each class session will start with a selection of historic prints and paintings depicting a famous event then will dive deep in to the years surrounding that moment, revealing the shifting identities of Pittsburgh before it became the place we know today. Meet the dreamers, scoundrels, inventors, workers, and society folk who shaped the city and enter a Dickensian world of cave gages, wharf shenanigans, rat soup and lost landmarks of Pittsburgh's smoky past.
