Do you believe in coincidences? Yesterday I received from Shorpy, the 100 year old photos site this picture of Pittsburg in 1941. I was much taken with the picture because it reminded me of my grandparents home at the same period of time in a town in Ohio. They were German immigrants in a industrial town. Later in the day I was watching a dvd about America in the Forties and there it was the very same picture you see here, but on video at the same time period. Something great? Naw, just a coincident, dosen't happen often and when it does it just gives me a moments pause.
