ASC Adds More Hopkins Maps to Historic Pittsburgh

The Archives Service Center added eight more real estate plat maps of Pittsburgh created by the G.M. Hopkins Company to the Historic Pittsburgh Maps Collection. They include an 1882 atlas; Volume 3, Volume 4 and Volume 5 [1890]; Volume 1 [1898]; Volume 2 [1899]; a 1910 atlas; and Volume 2 [1914]. These additions are part of an ongoing project by the ASC to identify and digitize all the Hopkins maps produced for Pittsburgh between 1872 and 1940. Twelve more volumes will be coming soon in the following months.
