Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Pure Art Deco in the West End

450 South Main Street, West End, Pittsburgh

This is about as perfect as an Art Deco storefront can get. What is especially cheering is that the ground floor is a new construction, using modern stock materials to create a storefront that matches the spirit of the rest of the building. Until a little more than twelve years ago, the ground floor had been bricked up in an unsympathetic fashion, as you can see in a 2008 image from Google Maps.

Father Pitt does not know what the initial K stands for at the top of the façade, and would be delighted to be informed.
