“Pittsburgh has been called the ‘Paris of Appalachia’ — so it’s fitting that a tradition of ‘locking’ or ‘securing’ your love or connection with someone is copied on the bridges in Pittsburgh, as it was once done in Paris. This photo shows that this tradition is alive and well in Pittsburgh!”
Chris Klein roots are from Pittsburgh, and his grandmother was born in Castle Shannon in the early 1900’s. Pittsburgh in the early 20th Century, while booming and bustling, was a dirty place. Not so today! Pittsburgh moved him. He loves to capture beauty in unique ways and was inspired to create Pittsburgh Beautiful as a way to share that with everyone.
