Stephen Foster Memorial and Cathedral of Learning

Stephen Foster Memorial and Cathedral of Learning
Despite the appearance of being a single building, the tall structure is the Cathedral of Learning (built 1926), and that lower structure is the Stephen Foster Memorial Theatre (built 1935-37). The buildings are not connected, but both are part of the University of Pittsburgh. We arrived too late in the day to explore the interior though.

It's all pure luck, John. It was cloudy yet the sun shone from the horizon.
