Baltimore Street

From Pittsburgh Streets
Baltimore Street
Neighborhood Lincoln Place
Origin of name Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore Avenue appears in the 1900 Hopkins atlas.[1] After the annexation of Lincoln Place into the city of Pittsburgh in 1929, there seems to have been no official acceptance or change of the street name, but a 1930 ordinance naming unnamed streets and alleys refers to it as Baltimore Street.[2] Current street signs say "Baltimore St."

Bob Regan includes "Baltimore" in a list of streets named for cities.[3]
