August 13, 2017: In studying photos showing the Fort Pitt Bridge Works building, which I recently completed (see the August 9th entry above), I realized that some of the earlier buildings surrounding the mine tipple weren't there anymore in photos from the 1930s and 1940s. I've decided to stick to modeling the summer of 1950, but without those buildings. I am "planting" scenery around the Fort Pitt building.
