From Pittsburgh Streets

To do

  • "Montgomery Avenue honors the man who owned Nunnery Hill."
  • "The Canal streets [on the North Side] commemorate the strange device that started boats to Philadelphia by water, took them over the mountains on 'inclines,' then put them in a canal again."
  • Itasco Street (formerly Isabella Court): "General Robinson, first white child born in the present North Side area, had a waterfront street named for him. Rebecca and Isabella Streets were named for two of his daughters."
  • "We have a Washington Street, for the first President, and a Truman, for the present." I don't think a Washington Street existed in 1952—there was Washington Boulevard and Washington Place, but no Street. Where was Truman?
