150 years: The Oyster House celebrates its sesquicentennial

PITTSBURGH — It was Oct. 12, 1870, and the morning edition of the Pittsburgh Daily Post’s front page carried news of the day and ads for dry goods, but not a word about a new Downtown restaurant and saloon where the oysters were a penny and draft beers a dime. The place, now known as the Original Oyster House, is celebrating its 150th anniversary after weathering the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, Prohibition, the Great Depression, fires, recessions and now another pandemic.
