"Hazelwood Ave. at Second Ave. Mr. Meszaros was a good man - he closed the pharmacy in the 60s after he was beat up and robbed once too many times."
"old J&L Pittsburgh Works rolling mills, as I recall. The neighborhood appears to be The Run. Second Avenue is next to mill."
"Corner of Hazelwood Ave. and Murray Ave. in Greenfield."
"the views don't match."
"This is Mansion st. ll\ooking toward Second Ave. Old Pittsburgh Railways affice at the bottom of the hill on Second Ave. In my youth, the city would barricade thuis hill in winter snows, and we sled rode down."
"If you went levt, you came to Cust St., where I grew up many moons ago."
"Glenwood Ave at the top of this wall. Used to throw stuff off of it onto Renova St. :)"
"This was the corner of Glenwood Ave and Second Ave. I grew up at the top of this hill."
"on the left corner was the Munson Hotel"
"Never saw a map old enough of that street it seems, I was recalling a late 1960s one for the construction of the USX construction where there was but a small slither of it left. I stand corrected."
"Tunnel was much more than an alley. It had a lot of traffic from 5th, thru Wylie, to Webster near where cars could get on Bigelow outbound. It's true that Tunnel ended 'near' where the USS bldg is now. Look at this old map - https://historicpittsb... - From 5th Ave, going north, parallel streets were 6th Ave, Tunnel, Chatham, Fernando, Washington, and so on. I lived nearby as a kid.
"Tunnel Street was an alley where the USX courtyard now stands. The tall building in the background is the still standing Oliver Building on Smithfield Street."
"The Dravo Building in this picture was at 300 Penn Ave which is round about the place of Gateway Center. The now gone Barbeau Street was two blocks toward the point from Stanwix St."
"Ferry St is now Stanwix St, Water is sort of Fort Pitt Blvd"
"this was a fun one - so in the modern location the Allegheny County Morgue (now the Health department) is on the right. However in the picture from 1913, it is on the right. This is because in 1929 they moved the building to it's present location to allow the construction of the county office building."
"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."
