Filling the hungry stomachs of Pittsburghers since 1933, no restaurant is as tied to city lore as Primanti Brothers. The classic Primanti’s sandwich - two thick slices of Italian bread loaded with meat, coleslaw and fries - dominated the Post-Gazette’s “Best Sandwich in Pittsburgh” poll for so many years that we eventually discontinued it altogether. Find this story and many others by following @digspgh!

The mid-20th century was a heyday for Pennsylvania moonshiners, and Pittsburgh was no exception. Even through the 1970s, small Pittsburgh businesses were busted for selling illegal alcohol. Find a full gallery and more info by following @digspgh!

The mid-20th century was a heyday for Pennsylvania moonshiners, and Pittsburgh was no exception. Local police were known for turning moonshine busts into large media spectacles, hamming for the cameras as they dumped barrels out of windows and dismantled distillery equipment. Most of the region's illicit production was based in the rural areas of Allegheny County, where the distillation process was harder to smell. Distribution was much more fluid. Even through the 1970s, small Pittsburgh businesses were being busted for selling illegal alcohol. See more images of Pittsburgh’s underworld through the link in our bio! (@pittsburghpg)

This unusual spiral staircase served the Carnegie Building, the headquarters of the Carnegie Steel Co. When completed in 1895, the Carnegie Building was the tallest office building in Pittsburgh, standing at 13 stories or about 200 feet. It was the first steel-framed skyscraper constructed in the city. The building, which had been located at 428 Fifth Ave., was demolished in 1952 — the year this photograph was taken — to allow for the expansion of what today is the Downtown Macy’s store.

Many people wouldn’t believe it if you told them Pittsburgh used to have its own professional pie-thrower. But it did. Check out @digspgh for the full story.

Many people wouldn’t believe it if you told them Pittsburgh used to have its own professional pie-thrower. But it did, and his name was Ross Thorn. A talented musician with a degree from CMU, he took up pie-throwing as part of his live performances. Thorn later became the first person to throw a pie on a scheduled airline in November 1963, another unique feat the people of Pittsburgh can claim as their own.

Today’s weather isn’t quite as bad as the heat wave that hit Pittsburgh in August 1962. But that’s no reason to ignore brewer Clarence Loy’s relaxation strategy. Find more @digspgh!

Pittsburgher Clarence Loy knew the best way to cool off during a long 1962 heat wave was with a beer almost as large as the portly brewer himself. Today’s weather isn’t quite as bad as that August swelter, which hit 93 degrees, but that’s no reason to ignore Loy’s relaxation strategy.
