A Pittsburgh gift that means more. Completed in 1932, the West End Bridge has one of the city's best views of the Pittsburgh skyline. It was the world's first bridge to use tied-arch technology on a large scale and was placed on the National Register of historic Places in 1979. It is one of several bridges in the downtown area that is painted Aztec gold, to match the city's official colors
The Artisans of Wendell August Forge, America’s premiere metalcrafters, have partnered with Pittsburgh photographer, JP Diroll, to create a limited edition City of Bridges ornament series, highlighting iconic bridges throughout the city of Pittsburgh. JP’s captivating photos combined with our metal artistry capture the detail and architecture of the amazing structures that help define the city.
