    Lived very near Pittsburgh for a while. It is now a beautiful city with gleaming mirrored buildings and a wonderful city park.

    At least three of these photos are from St. Louis, MO. The first one is the Civil Courts building; 12th from top, the Southwestern Bell building (far left); and 17th from top, St. Louis Union Station (clock tower). I suspect some of the others may be too. I am from St. Louis.
