Teenie Harris and the circle of history

Maybe I am missing something?? It's strange I don't see this in the PG, but PG editor David Shribman has a piece in Bloomberg pointing out that today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Teenie Harris and that his photos are now online at the Carnegie Museum.

It really is an amazing coincidence that Teenie Harris' birthday occurs right on the day there is news that the Sports and Exhibition Authority is letting the first contracts for the construction of a new arena. Harris' studio, along with the neighborhood it resided in were erased by the construction that would become Mellon (née Civic) Arena whose days are also now numbered.

A new beginning? or back to the future? It's up to us to determine.
