"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood." So said Daniel Burnham, the architect of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and the Flatiron Building in New York.
Outside of Chicago, no city has more Burnham buildings than Pittsburgh, thanks to the city's immense industrial wealth at the turn of the 20th Century. Burnham's Pittsburgh skyscrapers include the iconic Frick and Oliver buildings and Union Station, and some other important ones that aren't here anymore.
Hear the fun and fascinating tales behind them from Mark Houser, author of the new book "MultiStories: 55 Antique Skyscrapers & the Business Tycoons Who Built Them" and frequent contributor to Pittsburgh Magazine.
