Remarks & Notes 
Original Kodachrome by the late Joseph Jessel Jr, a good friend who taught me much about photographic composition as it applied to streetcar views (not always the same as it is for railroad views). Joe ran many charters over the former Pittsburgh Railways to obtain the views he wanted most to have. The Edgar Thomson Steel Works at East Pittsburgh was operating all out on this otherwise fine Sunday afternoon.

Pittsburgh no longer has commuter trains and Johnstown no longer has trolleys, but light rail remains strong in Pittsburgh. Mr. Rogers would be pleased.
