The Allegheny and Monongahela rivers converge and form the Ohio River at Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh. Nicknamed the City of Bridges, 446 bridges cross the rivers and span across its many valleys. Our namesake comes from one of the city’s 90 neighborhoods. Squirrel Hill, a beautiful area on the eastern edge of the city limits, is home to the largest of the city’s five city parks, Frick Park.
Our highly-accurate topographic maps are made by cutting out thin layers of either cherry or maple wood and then stacking them one on top of the other to reveal the true-to-life relief of the landscape. The finished wood is then mounted to a teal backer.
These maps are professionally framed using all acid free, archival quality materials in a 10″x8″ modern black frame with a warm white mat, keeping it preserved for years to come.
Because these maps are handmade out of thin layers of wood, the woodgrain will vary from one map to another and we encourage you to avoid hanging them in direct sunlight or potentially damp areas.
