From a 1959 book review by Robert D. Christie, a Director with the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania:

"Everyone from youth to old age likes to look at pictures and those presented in the 'Album' do more to capture the spirit and feeling of our city during past years, than any other pictorial study available in our bookstores at this time. It shows a broad knowledge of our history; is singularly free from serious errors; will save the public and this society endless time in answering questions and is offered at a price which permits it to qualify for practically every home library."
