Historic Pittsburgh Adds 10th New Partner

We welcomed our 10th new partner contributing images to Historic Pittsburgh: Northland Public Library. The core of the Northland Historical Image Collection will be made up of more than 800 photographs (currently 210 are online) from the Allegheny County Department of Public Works covering the municipalities of Bradford Woods Borough, Franklin Park Borough, Marshall Township, McCandless Township and Ross Township. These photos cover the construction and upgrades of county roads beginning in 1919 in the North Hills as well as the construction of North Park. Also included are photographs from the North Allegheny History Museum collection, the Franklin Park Borough collection, and private collections from individuals, organizations and businesses in the North Hills area. Welcome!
