* A Little Journey in a Pittsburgh Taxicab.

by Elbert Hubbard. 1915.
"Pittsburgh is a city of magnificent distances. It just runs over and inundates the landscape for a distance of, say, twenty miles, up and down the Ohio, the Alleghany [sic], the Monongahela. Some roads are as rough and rocky as the road to Dublin. Houses are perched on aerie crags and hilltops. There are winding approaches and picturesque situations which are beautiful to anybody and everybody but the taxi driver."
