The Mirrour of the World

Index to the Pictures

This is a collection of pictures by Father Pitt that stray outside his usual domain in southwestern Pennsylvania. The site is completely simpleminded, built in pure HTML and formatted with less than 2K of CSS, so instead of a database you get this index, which makes the site as searchable as it needs to be.

The name comes from one of the first printed books in English, William Caxton’s Mirrour of the World, an encyclopedia of everything there was to know about everything everywhere.
