Like A Postcard

Hello Friends!
I hope that you had a great Thursday! If you are in the US I hope that it was a wonderful holiday.
The title if this post has to do with this picture that I took yesterday at the Dusquene Incline.



Doesn't it look like a postcard?
What amazing views of the city.



Here is the front of the upper station.



The works inside. That one big gear has wooden teeth that they switch out when needed.



Inside the car.



Inside the lower station.



We visited this gallery down in the Strip district and were surprised to see a fiber arts exhibit inside.



This guy has to a of buttonS



Here is a close up of his chest.



This was cool...



It was all pipe cleaners made into these flowers and twisted together.



Here's a close up of it...



Rich and I also visited the Frick.



We took a tour of the mansion.



We also went through the museums. They had some wonderful carriages and automobiles.
The art in this house and museum are wonderful too. We saw a Monet and a beautiful Rubens.
I stitched some more on Margaret....



I think she is moving along. I am tempted to keep stitching on her when I get home.
Thanks for traveling with me!

Happy Friday!

Hey Chris! I live right around the corner from the incline, so if you're ever back in the Burgh during a weekend, let me know and we can have a little GTG!

I love that photo, you're so right about it being just like a postcard. The funicular railway is a great way to get from one level to another quickly.
