Robert G. Pflaum Photograph Collection

What's online?

The online collection includes images focusing on streetcar routes through downtown Pittsburgh, its neighborhoods, and surrounding areas, including the South Hills, Dormont, and Castle Shannon. Railroad views of other parts of western Pennsylvania, such as the Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, Johnstown, and Colliers, West Virginia were also chosen because of their significance. All items that appear online have been attributed to Pflaum.
