"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."

"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)"

"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. "
