Buildings By Shane Blog RSS

Last month, I was contacted by a woman named Rona who asked me if I could do an illustration of her great-grandfather’s bank on Court Place in Pittsburgh. She didn't have much info about the building itself, but provided me with a drawing that was printed in the newspaper. So what I did next was I checked out Google Maps' Street View of the street I knew to be Court Place in Downtown Pittsburgh, which runs right alongside the Boulevard of the Allies ramp.
