Notes
Content: [Typewritten text accompanying photograph] City social clubs have often developed into important and monumental centers. The Pittsburgh Athletic Club, by Janssen and Abbott, expresses more its social than its athletic function. Like so many city clubs, it has taken Italian Renaissance architecture for its inspiration, and developed an exterior that has a dignity almost too academically formal, though well proportioned and beautiful.
