Notes:Maple Terrace

From Pittsburgh Streets

Source:Fleming-history-told: "Thus we have in Pittsburgh Sycamore street on Mt. Washington, Walnut street in the Shadyside district, Elm street on the hill, and Chestnut street on the North side, and a few more here and there with tree names. No system, no association, no key to locality from kindred names. ¶ Only on Mt. Washington at Maple terrace (no maples) is the tree apparent to justify the name." I cannot understand what he is trying to say in that last sentence. It would make sense except for the parenthetical "no maples," which seems to negate the entire point.
