It’s Water Under the Bridge

It’s water under the bridge (s), the water being the Monongahela River. I lost count of the number of bridges we sailed under.

Sunday night.

Rivers of Steel Photo Cruise on the Mon. During the 2 1/2 hour Riverboat Cruise we had rain, clouds, thunder, lightning )where we had to go inside the boat) and then a sliver of sun briefly, ending on clear skies.

Big Chuck’s Market, North Side

We knew there was a story when we saw this market on Chestnut Street. We wondered who Big Chuck was when we saw the sign above the door.

“For decades, Charlie Standfast was an icon of Troy Hill, known in the North Side as a man who took care of his neighbors.” *

The trolley tracks are still visible in the brick street.

Read Big Chuck’s (Charlie Standfast) life story by Jessica Turnbull ( written in 2009) about how he kept this Chestnut Street Market for more than thirty years on the North Side, click the link below

Between 44th and 43rd Streets

Between 44th and 43rd Streets, Lawrenceville. Steve and I were driving back from dinner. Took a different route. Saw this street sign. Took a loop around the block so I could roll down the window and shoot. Love being a passenger. Here is an article about Fractional Street Addresses
