Historic Astronomical Landmark Sold For Scrape: But Now Great News! Supplemental Information Has Been Received. By Guest Host: James Mullaney

A note to Jim Mullaney from Phil Harrington:   

Well, I posted a mea culpa to the group, licking my wounds as I went.  In hindsight, I should have looked at that photo more closely! 

For one, Scanlon’s dome was aluminum and that other one is clearly rusty. 

Also, I discovered an article in the Pittsburgh club newsletter from 2013 that says the Scanlon dome was saved.
