Why should the beautiful die?

Congregation Talmud Torah

Congregation Talmud Torah, South Side, Pittsburgh

Information on this building is surprisingly hard to come by. This old article in the City Paper points out how little information there is, and then possibly muddies the waters still more. The City Paper says it was a school, not a temple; other on-line sources insist that it was also a congregation, not just a school; the City Paper (quoting the Post-Gazette) says it was built in the late 1920s; the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle says the congregation was founded before 1917 (which is not necessarily when the building was put up). At any rate, it seems not to have been a religious institution very long; the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. The building now belongs to an advertising agency that, not surprisingly at all, gets nothing but content-free five-star reviews on Google.
