Taken from the 1917 book, The Challenge of Pittsburgh. A fairly fascinating Christian text that talks about the social and vice problems of Pittsburgh, and how to solve them.  Included are such gems debating the pluses and minuses of legalizing prostitution, as well as a chart showing the effects of alcohol on heredity.
