Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Today Pegman travels to the City of Bridges. A site of great historical importance in the French and Indian War of the 1750s, Fort Duquesne was built by the French at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers. The British replaced it with Fort Pitt a few years later and the city grew up around the military establishment.

Pittsburgh is an interesting city where skyscrapers tower over 18th-century fortifications and funicular railroads crawl up steep hillsides. Stroll and around and see if you can find something that interests you. When you’re done, write 150 words and link to the prompt using the frog below. Remember, reading and commenting is part of the fun!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy writing!

    Thanks for the post! I’m curious about Pittsburg, but I’m afraid the image appears to be a screenshot instead of a link to Google Maps?

    Reblogged this on Word Shamble and commented:
    Another week, another inspiring location from Karen and Josh at Pegman. This week, it’s Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My instalment will air tomorrow, but do pop along and write a story yourself.

  4. Did not see this until now — thank you Dale, for your post, which led me to this one (for some reason it did not appear in my feed this weekend!) — but am joining anyway, late or not …
    For some bridges need to be crossed …
    Left the link with the Froggy, too, but here it is, just because.
