(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original antique C. T. American Art postcard from the 1920s. It shows a view of the Block House in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
"BLOCK HOUSE PITTSBURGH, PA. - On a strip of ground, 20 feet wide, 90 feet long, situated in the Point District or Fort Pitt as it was known in the early years of Pittsburgh's history, stands a little building, known as the Block House, the first constructed at a point near where the three rivers meet. It was built by Colonel Henry Boquet of the British Army, while he was in command at Fort Pitt in 1764. Daughters of the American Revolution, who obtained the Block House for preservation purposes, had surrounding buildings torn down, beautified the grounds and made other changes to restore the original appearance.", reads the description printed on the back.
The postcard is unused and is in GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips, light foxing.
