Pittsburgh, Meda Logan Poem 1907
A poem by Meda Logan, dating to around 1907, captures the public’s conflicted view of the heavily polluted city. It was found on the rear of a badly damaged menu.
“Here’s to grim Pittsburgh
the city of smoke,
Where the sky’s but a memory
and sunshine a joke,
Where the incense of stogies
perfumeth the air -
But in spite of her faults
we all love to be there.”
