📣 Welcome to Women's History Month

Plus, cheers to these job listings.

It’s Thursday — #ThrowbackThursday, to be precise.

Today, we’re going back in time. First, to an iconic 1926 building with a brand new look. Then to 1936 for some vintage vehicles. And, finally, back to 1925 where we’ll meet a local suffragist and her contemporaries.

Now, back in 2021 news: The latest on COVID-19 vaccines, what could be next for our region’s public transit, a fasssscinating snake story, and (just for Incline Insiders) a tricky I Spy revealed. 

What Pittsburgh is talking about

3 things to know today

➡️ Pennsylvania teachers will be able to get the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Gov. Tom Wolf expects that the state should receive enough of the vaccine to get the “bulk” of school staff back into their buildings by the end of March. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

👋 The Terminal is officially open in the Strip District after two years of renovation and five years of debate over the landmark 1926 building. First, here’s the history of the space. And now, here’s a look at its future. (KDKA-TV)

🚉 What would your perfect public transit system look like? That’s what Port Authority’s NEXTransit initiative is trying to figure out.

Throwback Thursday to 1925

This dress is an important artifact in Pittsburgh history. (📸: Heinz History Center) 

This dress was worn by local suffragist Lucy Kennedy Miller around 1925. Lucy and her sister Eliza, as well as their parents Julian and Jennie Kennedy, were leaders in the suffrage movement in Pittsburgh. The sisters spent “many years advocating for women’s suffrage through speeches and political action,” Heinz History Center explains. Lucy was even the first head of the League of Women Voters in Pittsburgh.

After the 19th Amendment passed, the sisters “went on to wage a decades-long fight against corruption in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County government,” according to the Pittsburgh Suffrage Centennial Committee.

Speaking of suffrage, don’t miss the story of Pittsburgh suffragist and civil rights activist Daisy Lampkin, who is now honored at Carnegie Science Center’s Miniature Railroad & Village.

We’ve got women’s history stories lined up for every #ThrowbackThursday this month, so stay tuned. Got an idea for us to add to the list? Just hit reply and let us know.

Want in on next week’s puzzle? (📸: @rossilynne) 

Today our members — a.k.a. Incline Insiders — got the answer to an exclusive round of I Spy in their newsletters. That's it above, a photo of the sculpture at the Free Store in Braddock.

Here's how it works: Yesterday we showed Insiders a closeup photo of the art and asked them to tell us where the photo was taken. Today, we shared the answer, the winner, and some info about the spot.
