Thank you for putting this together. I lived in Brookline from 1954 to 1970, then 1979 to 1982. It's wonderful to see that the history of my childhood home is preserved. I'm anxious to see pics of the new Brookline Blvd, and how people are reacting to it. A little factoid, if McGibney park is still there, I grew up with Danny, who lived up the street from me. His father was a sportswriter for the Pgh Post Gazette.

I love this wonderful website and have browsed it many, many times over the years...even though I have not lived in Brookline (and Mt. Lebanon) for 65 years.

My Dad worked as a clerk in the Alm's Pharmacy in 1932 while he was a student at Pitt Pharmacy School. That was at 826 Brookline Blvd, corner of Stebbins, later Stebbrook Pharmacy.

He may have also worked at Charlson Pharmacy at 802 Brookline Blvd. in the 1930's.

If anyone has any photos they would share of these stores in period, please contact me. Thank you.

Congratulations to those who operatethis website, it is fantastic.

Regards,

David Meisner

Hi. I'm Sue Miller. My husband was Edward F. Miller. He was in Toner Institute until 1949. He was sent to Boys town from there. He went back to work at Toner after graduation, then joined the Air force in 1956. I met Ed through a cousin who brought him on a visit to my parents. We wrote to each other for two years, then were married in June of 1959. We were married almost 50 years when he passed. I would like to hear from anyone who knew him in Pittsburgh.

Good morning! My grandparents lived at 1007 Brookline Blvd. (now demolished). I was wondering if anyone has any photographs of that building.

The website gets better and better!

In those Berwin Avenue street scenes first picture on the right.

That 1939 photo came from our Short Cut site but I don't think I ever identified who is shown

That is me Don Sayenga pulling my sister Carol in the wagon in front of 506 Berwin.

Carol is now deceased. She married Jim Lynn who lived on Birtley.

I updated the caption Don, Thank You! Remember to check the War

Remembrance page. Lots of new stories about Brookline's war heroes.

To Dean Zotis - You house was our favorite to visit on Halloween. How your parents knew if a kid was trying to get a second candy apple amazed me. Great memories.
