My father was born and raised in Brookline and lived on Rossmore Avenue. My mother was born on the Southside and lived on Crysler Street. After my parent's married they bought a house at 2503 Wedgemere Street, where we lived from 1960-1969. My father worked for PPG at the time and he was transfered to Huntsville, AL, where they were opening a new aircraft and specialty glass plant. We moved to Huntsville in the spring of 1969 and I am currently still living there.

I got a chance last summer to spend a couple of days in Pittsubrgh on our return trip from Cooperstown, NY. It was fun being able to show the family the old neighborhood.

I spent more time looking through this incredible web site and found my 3rd and 4th grade class pictures, and my 1st communion group picture, from Our Lady of Loreto Elementary School (1963 and 1964)! How wonderful that these things are archived online. All schools should do this (maybe on web sites for their city/neighborhood). Keep this web site going!

Growing up in the 50's, my grandmother worked at the dry cleaners as a seamstress. My mother would often drive over and pick her up and we would generally stop at the Blue Bonnet bakery. We always bought two loaves of bread as one would be gone by the time we got home... Good memory.

I was born in Pittsburgh but moved to Texas long ago. My dad was born and raised in Brookline. He lived at 2836 Castlegate Ave. You have a wonderful website that brings back so many memories.

I was born in Pittsburgh (1954), and I lived in Brookline until I was 10. I lived at the end of Crysler St, and I attended Liberty Elementary School (K - 2nd grade) and Our Lady of Loretto Catholic School (3rd - 4th grade). Both schools were right next to my house, which overlooked the Moore Park playing field. I remember walking out of my back yard directly into the woods (before the Catholic school was built), playing with my friends at the little creek that ran through it, cutting through the woods to get to Moore Park, and walking through the woods to the old saw mill. We knew all the neighbors up the street by name, and there were many kids in the neighborhood to be friends with. In retrospect, a great place to grow up in if you were a kid. ... This is a great web site!
