Dig in on The Digs

The Yee family: Back row, father Yee Toy, his wife Gee Shee Ho holding son Donald, and Yuen. In front are Robert, Ruth, Harriet and Anna.
The Post-Gazette is excavating, curating and digitizing its photo library, which has been accumulating photographs for more than a century, and displaying the photos online with a peek into their origins.

We hope The Digs will be of interest to readers and history buffs, and ignites some memories of Pittsburgh's storied past.
