"This movie theater was the big thing for a lot of Bloomfield residents. In my era the late 1970’s throughout the 1980’s & into the low 1990’s was so much fun. My good friends and I would visit this theater on many a Friday or Saturday night and see all the latest films. Also above the movie theater was a few classrooms 4th & 5th grades from the Church & grade school Immaculate Conception. I believe the door on the right on the bottom picture was where we would exit the building once our school day was over. It was either or door not sure really . It was a long time ago. lol 40+ years.

"Those trees on the left side of the sidewalk were long gone by the time the bottom picture was taken. Time has a way of reclaiming things that tend to be precious to some! "

"I actually walked across this bridge when I was younger. In the 1980’s before they shut it down to build the new bridge. Bloomfield has changed due to the local hospitals. Once it was predominantly an Italian dwelling but not so much these days. Diverse for sure. Not that Italian people aren’t cool . It’s just not so small town community anymore."

"The retaining wall on Itin is built from stones from the old Western Pennsylvania Penitentiary, which was torn down in 1886. The retaining wall on Troy Hill Road is built from stones from the old Western Pennsylvania Penitentiary as well. The original Western Penitentiary was completed in 1825 and was built in the Allegheny Commons area. A plaque marking the site is in the eagle enclosure at the National Aviary. In 1882, a new prison was built along the Ohio River, where it remains."
