The Studebaker brothers.
No wonder their cars were so conservative.

The celebration, which began on October 23 and concluded on October 28, included a parade of illuminated floats, a pageant of lights hosted at Forbes Field, and an air show at Bettis Field. Over 25,000 people attended festivities at Forbes Field while a record-breaking 70,000 spectators journeyed to Bettis Field on October 28 to witness the air circus. The Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce was responsible for the week's festivities and decided to combine the tribute to Edison with a tribute to Pittsburgh's groundbreaking industrial firms, known as "Fifty Years of Pittsburgh Progress a Glorious Success." The celebration included a Pageant of Light and Progress at Forbes Field, which featured historical skits about prominent individuals such as Andrew Carnegie, George Westinghouse, and H.J. Heinz.

Pitts64, Thank you for the Pittsburgh history information. I know where all of those locations are or were. I grew up in Penn Hills and most of my family and my wife's family worked at the steel mills.

All I can say is that I am very, very proud of where I'm from. Pittsburghers are some of the hardest working people in the country. These pics bring back all my excitement.

I don't live there now. I only moved because of the weather. Being in construction my entire life it gets hard to work out there sometime. I miss so much about there. Everytime we go back we spend so much time in the strip and eat all the ethnic food. I don't have those kind of things here in NC.


Thanks again for the great pics and info.

Hey, Zooma, was that a Mattel "Fanner 50" you were packin' there?
Popular gun at the time.



And, NO, parents letting their kids play with toy guns doesn't lead
to a violent mind-set and life style. If anything, toy guns are the first
step toward respecting guns and using them safely. Toy guns have
been frowned on now for at least 20 years, and youths who, mostly,
never had a toy gun but have no respect for human life -- nor even
self respect -- are in the news all the time for drive-bys, 7-11 robberies
and the like. The do-gooders will have to pry my Kilgore and my Red
Rider out of my cold, dead hands! LOL

Ever since I was a kid, I always thought the sight of a steel mill
or foundry at NIGHT was as awesome and enthralling as as any
grand display Mother Nature could conjure! THANKS for posting
this. I don't know where you'd go to SEE this anymore in the U.S.

This was taken as we were watching a parade in 1953...that's me on the right with my beer (I have no idea what that is ). The little girl is my sister and the kid on the far left was our neighbor, Larry.
The reason I'm posting this photo id the show the patch on Larry's Levis.
We kids, when we wore a hole on our jeans, would get one of these patches ironed onto the worn area of your pants. The patches had some glue on them that the iron would melt and glue the patch on your pants. I remember they were stiff for a few days.
We weren't, poor, just middle class, but we made every nickel count....all family's did back then.
Most hot rod guys are pretty thrifty, but the kids in the general population today would crap if they had to wear jeans with a big patch stuck on their pants.
We didn't think anything of it.
There was no peer pressure in the 50's. We were just kids, happy to be with our families and other kids. It really was that simple.
Even, up through my high school years (1965-68) I did not know ONE kid that had divorced parents...not ONE. I'm sure there were some at my high school, but I sure didn't know any....
=====================
One of these days, I'm going to take the time to write about growing up in the 1950's and 1960's in the Los Angeles suburbs....going to drag strips like San Gabriel, Lions, Fontana and, later, Irwindale, or the jalopy races in Gardena and Ascot every weekend with my dad until I was 12, when he then would drop me off on my own with my cameras and a few dollars to troll the pits and take in the nitro fumes.
A time when nobody but gangsters got shot and everyone said "thank you", The "Indy 500" was won by guys who's names were Sam, Johnny or Al, not something like Helio, when the gas station guys wore uniforms and washed your windshield, when the cops would wave at you and your male school teachers wore suits and ties and milk was delivered to your door, and, and, and........I'm going to write it all down soon.
There are several of us who grew up in this area when I did, so my story is not unique.
But to grow up in a time and in a location right smack dab in the middle of all things hot rod related, was truly amazing.
