Pittsburgh PA:  View of a drawing created by Ingram & Boyd Architects of the new Buhl Planetarium.  This view is the initial 1st floor layout of the planetarium. The project was completed in 1939.  The Buhl Planetarium was built with monies from the Buhl Foundation; a foundation created by the wealthy North Side clothier Henry Buhl of Boggs and Buhl department store fame.  Brady Stewart was selected for the job due to his specialized equipment; an 8x10 Dierdorff camera, and his expertise in lighting and photographing large renderings and drawings.
