Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?


For a few years around the turn of the twentieth century, Pittsburgh was most commonly spelled without the H, on account of a ruling by the Post Office that all burgs should be so spelled. The spelling had never been completely standardized, but the spelling with the H was always the popular favorite, and the Post Office soon relented. Some pedants still insisted on the other spelling, however, and the Pittsburg Press daily was so spelled into the 1930s. Here the name appears as one of the four corners of the earth under the rotunda of the Pennsylvania Station.
