The 28th Street Bridge in 1908

A view of the 28th Street Bridge, looking south, taken on November 16, 1908.  That’s the Hill above, and Polish Hill is off to the left.  The large building half-visible on the hill is the first West Penn Hospital, which was in its final years of service.  The road on slanting up on the right side of the hill is the Brereton Street extension (which is actually part of the Strip District, although historically and geographically it’s more connected to Polish Hill).  This bridge was in use until the 1930s, when the current bridge was built.
