Pennsylvania Railroad Station, South Baggage Passage & Canopy, 1101 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA
Written data includes photocopies of photographs.
Significance: The South Baggage Passage and Canopy are functional appendages of the historically and architecturally significant Pennsylvania Railroad Station, which is a symbol of the important role railroads have played in the region. It permitted passengers to move from the taxi stand (rotunda) to the open concourse area without moving through the passenger waiting room. Baggage carts were loaded and unloaded in the adjoining baggage room and some baggage was carted through this passage on its way to be shipped or received. The canopy provided protection from the weather.
