Abandoned Pittsburgh - Typewriter Post Card

Product Description

This card's photo of a typewriter, was left behind at W.A. Young & Son's Foundry in Greene County, PA. I bet some of you have never seen a typewriter live and in person. The product Whiteout, which you probably have used, exists because of the typewriter. No backspace or delete on this original piece of hardware. 

In 1900, William. A. Young built his shop at Rice’s Landing to service the Monongahela River stern wheelers that docked there for repairs. The shop’s machines were powered by an intricate system of leather belts on ceiling-mounted wooden pulleys, originally operated by a single steam engine. When Young’s descendants closed the business in 1965, the machinery and tools — some dating back to 1870 — were left intact. Locked and neglected for 20 years, the foundry was purchased by the Greene County Historical Society and is now managed as a Rivers of Steel Heritage Area.

These 4 x 6 postcards on heavy card stock have the print on the front and other than a small  'Abandoned Pittsburgh' logo on the back, the space is left blank so we can hand write your message here.
