Replaced by Walmarts with shoppers in pyjamas and lots of exposed skin and discount stores offering poorly made clothing from cheap fabrics that disintegrate after two washes, the department store is a thing of the past. On my wish list of likely unattainable goals in this lifetime, the return of the real department store is high up. Yes it is. Photo number one is from an exhibit at Phipps Conservatory. Three Rivers Stadium was one of those giant multi-use stadiums built in the 1070's. It is a new model train installation. Adorable!|
