Last week we stopped at a house in Schenley Farms, a historic neighborhood here in Pittsburgh, and found something rather amazing still in operation...
That's an original built-in vacuum cleaner. So very cool! Also some nice art tile (Grueby, Moravian?) with brass lantern sconces on the fireplace. They also had a lovely copper and glass awning over the back door.
Another house was full of original details (and also so full of people I couldn't take many photos). There were so many closed and caution taped doors that I missed most of the house, the few I peeked into were original/untouched bathroom and closets. But since I was in ninja picture mode, no pictures..
Another rather unassuming house had both it's original 40's bathrooms, including colored fixtures and patterned linoleum. Sadly, I don't think the future bodes well for their continued survival.
A nice hex tile floor at a storefront near us (it also has a great early light fixture that I don't have a picture of).
And just a pretty rear view of a couple of houses in Shadyside.
And lastly, some nice details from a Mt. Lebanon Tudor Revival.
Hopefully you all had fruitful weekends, if not, hope you had a nice spot to lounge
