Frick Auto Collection & Mansion, Pittsburgh Photos

Steel industrialist Henry Clay Frick built a family mansion named Clayton in millionaire's row east of downtown Pittsburgh in 1891. Frick's labor unpopularity caused him to decamp along with the bulk of his art collection to New York City where his house & paintings became the Frick art gallery. His daughter also willed his Pittsburgh family estate intact to make it a public museum. Today the mansion with original furnishings, an automobile collection greatly expanded from the Frick's now antique limousines & an art gallery occupy the city block of gardens.
