From Pittsburgh Streets

To do

  • George T. Fleming, "The old Sixth Ward," Pittsburgh Gazette Times, Aug. 31, 1924, fifth section, p. 4, 85852295: "Decatur street, subsequently called Hazel, and Franklin street were not paved until 1866, when both were paved with cobblestones from the river. We will take a look at old Decatur street. There was another Decatur street at the same time in the old First Ward, nothing more or less than old Jail alley of Pittsburgh's early days. It is now known as Delray street and extends from Liberty street to Fourth avenue. There are at least three dwellings on it. We will start at the foot of the present Hazel street, formerly Decatur, and present some reminiscences of old residents and old times there. . . ."
