A pair of iconic buildings in Pittsburgh’s skyline were overshadowed by the dark clouds of financial ruin as soon as they were finished. Plus a twice-haunted library, horse racing millionaires, and the time Henry Ford bought the wrong house in Lawrenceville. Mark Houser shares entertaining tales of century-old marvels and the characters who built them.
