Default Online Photo Archive of Western PA Expands

For my fellow western Pennsylvanians or
anyone interested in the PRR, this story from
Tuesday's Pittsburgh Post Gazette will be of
interest:

The Digital Collection:

I found the pages slow to load even with
a broadband connection.

A couple of sample photos.

A search under the PRR yielded this 1949
photo of diesel switchers:

And this shot from W. Homestead, now
the site of the Waterfront:

This is a real treasure trove of historic
photographs.
