  1. Hi, My name is Denise Craig-Lewis and I work for PSP Metrics. We are located downtown in the Frick Building.
    These photos are great! We would like to use the Duquesne Incline with snow covered city photo for our annual December Holiday E-card to our clients.
    Please let me know if permission is granted and if there is a fee associated with this permission.

    1. Hi Denise. I really doubt these photos were original from our reporter, sorry. They should have credited the original photographer before posting on our school student newspaper. Best wishes though.
