[Postcard of Liberty Bridge in Pittsburgh]

Description: Postcard of the Liberty Bridge over the Monogahela River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as the skyline of the city, seen from Liberty Tunnels. A handwritten note addressed to Miss Helen H. Aten from Woodrow W. Aten at Camp Campbell says "Dear Helen and all. This is Pittsburgh. I just came back to the station after having had some chop suey. It was good but does become rather sickening if one tries to eat all. I had a three hour wait here - from 8:25 to 11:25. The train was quite dirty on the way here. Weather just a bit cool. Bro. Woodrow."
