Pittsburgh Murals–The Strip District

I promised myself that this year I was going to photograph the signs and murals around Pittsburgh. Some are faded reminders of old businesses but some are distinct identification of Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

This one from The Strip District is one of the best and most famous.

Wholey Poly Fish Heads in The Strip District

I love being retired for a lot of reasons. The biggest is being able to do things when places are not crowded. Once a month we journey down to the Pittsburgh Strip District about five miles away.
We visit The Pennsylvania Macaroni Company, Penzy Spices,Parma Sausage Company and other depending on what we need. Our last stop is always Wholey’s .

We are fortunate to have the largest fish wholesaler in three states located in Pittsburgh and even luckier that they have a retail store as well. I have been coming here since I was a kid but never looked into the tray labeled Fish Heads and Bones $1.98/lb. I always thought it would look gross and in a way it is but there is also some color and texture that is beautiful in its own way.
