"I lived a couple blocks from this corner - Wylie at Chatham St. Chatham was just two blocks out from 6th Ave. Enlarge the photo and see the Chinese Laundry owned by the family of a good friend and classmate. They lived above it. So many households and businesses were forced to move in the late 50s. ------(The map you see on this page doesn't show the way things were. For example , Centre did not go into this part of the Hill. It didn't go below where Crawford is now.)"
"Herron Hill Pumping Station on Centre Ave"
"This was a very lively section of Wylie and the Hill District back in the 40s. All cleared for the old Civic Arena in th 60s. Now just all cleared for parking lots. Prime real estate, development plans unknown."
"Metropolitan Hospital turned into Salk Hall, a University lab with lots of lab animals housed there. Beautiful grounds along Terrace St in the 60s. In the 70s the University added the Dental School building in the foreground."
"I believe that's the former Post Office/Planetarium that is now the Children's Museum in the background."
"Wylie started at 5th between Grant and Ross. Ross didn't cross 5th as it does now. The first block of Wylie ( from 5th to 6th) was renamed Court Pl sometime after this photo."
"System forced me to put tag at Logan and Our Way. Photo is Logan at Colwell looking toward 5th. Colwell was a short 1/2 block above Our Way. "
"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. "
