Caricature of Henry Hornbostel

henry-hornbostel-by-washburn

Pittsburgh’s favorite architect as he appeared at the height of his creative power, from Sketches, Serious and Otherwise: Men of Pittsburgh and Vicinity, by W. S. Washburn. Alert readers will note that Father Pitt himself makes a few guest appearances in this book. The Tech banner reminds us that Hornbostel established the School of Architecture at Carnegie Tech and was for many years the head of the Department of Fine Arts there.
