Pictures were great. In fact, I found pictures of the St. Peter's fire that took place when I was 7. Long story, my uncle was an artist who was painting a picture of the steeple from my grandmother's kitchen window. Lightning hit the steeple and the church burned. We all ran around the corner, but by the time we got there, the steeple had collapsed. I was given the painting by my aunt after my uncle died.

Really just a compilation of available photos from Carnegie Library's Photo collection in the Pennsylvania room. It would have been nice if the photos covered ALL of the Suuth Side. Very disappointed.

Great info in a small book. Husband's mother even recognized some of the people in the high school photo! She even learned about things she was not aware of.

If you are from Pittsburgh or familiar with Pittsburgh this might be the book for you. It had very little text but primarily pictures. I was looking for something more - more biographical sketches of the residents of the era.
