Laughlin Memorial Library, Ambridge

This splendid library was built in 1929 from a design by Eric Fisher Wood, who is perhaps most famous for collaborating with Henry Hornbostel on the extravagant memorial to America’s great president Warren G. Harding.

The Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge

Seen here from 11th Street in Ambridge. The bridge opened in 1926; and, considering the location, it will not greatly surprise you to learn that it was put up by the American Bridge Company.
