Silver Lake was used as a carp farm for landowner George Finley, as well as a picnic spot for locals. Old postcards depict the location as a romantic getaway within the city.

Let’s take a ride! Be it on the Pennsylvania Turnpike (“America’s First Super Highway,” and a model for the national interstate highway system), the massive Brilliant Viaduct over Washington Boulevard, or Skybus (futuristic transit system that never took off), we’ll explore all the different ways to get around Pittsburgh past and present.

The Good Question! Podcast is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and CASTUS.
