"Per a 1906 Sanborn map of Pittsburgh, Dante Alley was a small alley that would have been right through when the fountain is at the Steel Building."
" Part of Bigelow St (not Blvd) is on the hill above 2nd Ave in Hazelwood/Greenfield"
"Wylie started at 5th across from the Count House between Ross and Grant. Ross didn't cross 5th as it does now."
"Civic Arena shorted Wylie Ave, but that's the William Penn Hotel in the background"
"this is not the right chalfont st
the chalfont st in the pic is in beltzhoover"
"No, this is a few doors east of Magee. I lived nearby as a kid in the 50s. Magee did not cross 5th - as in the photo. In my day there was atill a gas station at 5th and Magee where it is in the photo."
"Chuck's tag is correct. The photo says "looking west". I believe it should be "looking east" from Pride. Enlarging the photo lets me see the Rialto Theatre at the SE corner of Marion and 5th. Two block out from there you can just about make out Fifth Ave High."
"i moved the tag - this part of Wylie was almost downtown - about 2 blocks in from Washington."
"Magee was never Logan. Logan didn't cross 5th ave. It went north, starting at 5th and ending at Bedford. Magee also didn't cross 5th. It started at 5th , a bit inbound from Logan, and went south to Bluff St. Elm, also didn't cross 5th. It started a bit inbound from Magee, but like Logan , went north to Bedford. Those "parking lot" streets you see on the map - Logan and Fullerton - were named , I guess, as a tribute to the two original ones. Both are further inbound than the originals. That little bit of Magee seen between 5th and Our Way did not exist. Solid stores lined north side of 5th between Elm and Logan. And a tiny bit of Logan (shown on the map) still exists ( BBQ place on corner of Logan/5th)"
Washington Park alongside Bedford Ave - Lower Hill. I lived nearby and played fball there in the 50s."
"it took 2 tries to tag it -- site makes tagging very difficult. My 2nd try ( listed lower ) is correct"
"Clay Alley - Lower Hill from Washington toward downtown between Wylie & Webster "
"this Clay Alley was in the Lower Hill - parallel and between Wylie and Webster from Washington toward downtown. "
"I am trying to move tag to between 6th and 5th ave. The bldg at the right is the courthouse (5th ave side between Ross and Grant).One end of Wylie was at 5th ( block in the photo was renamed Court Pl sometime after this photo). "
"Pittsburgh Press Want ADs from the 1960s actually put this at 5920 Centre Ave, which is more in the Shadyside end of Centre Ave and is presently, a Whole Foods."
"The 9/5/1915 issue of the Pittsburgh Press confirms 317 as the address for Iron City Plumbing Co at that time. According to a 1905 Sanborn, the 300 Block of Penn would be about this location in the Gateway Center Complex. "
"Actually that's not strictly true, apparently they've redubbed one of the roads that now guides one through the parking lot that was the civic arena Logan Street. "
"Most of Logan St was among the casualties of the Civic Arena expansion, this little sliver is all that remains."
"step were at 5th across from kirkpatrick"
"those steps were at 5th ave - across from kirkpatrick. Brady was very steep between 5th and Forbes. That block of Brady is gone."
