Flatiron Building, Downtown Pittsburgh

When I hear Flatiron,  I think New York City and according to Wikipeida the NYC one was built in 1902.  This flatiron shaped building in Pittsburgh is listed as being built c.1885.  Triangular buildings and other odd shaped structures are listed at waymarking.com.

At the corner of Liberty and Seventh Downtown Pittsburgh
