    I am wondering if it is my imagination or was Pittsburgh pretty much treeless 100 years ago? Or was every picture taken 100 years ago in the dead of winter?

    I've noticed this too. I think 100 years ago the green had trouble thriving in this environment. Think of all those pitch black Pittsburgh at Noon photos from the 30s, if people can't see the light trees can't be getting all of what they need.
