Carrie Underwood is my favourite country singer. She is young, beautiful and charming female in her 30s. Her voice takes me away from all issues of this planet and I start enjoy my life and listen songs created by her mind. Now she is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the last day of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you are a country music lover as me, then you must visit at least one Carrie's concert. All tour dates are available at the carrieunderwoodtour.com. Visit the website and make yourself familiar with all Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!

Thanks for the many memories of growing up in the Beechview and Brookline neighborhoods. While primarily attending grade school at Beechwood Elementary, many of us walked to Brookline Elementary school, on Pioneer Ave for wood shop and drafting classes. While the Pgh Public Schools provided car fare for the trolley, most of us walked between the two schools. Even if you took the street car from Beechview, you had to get off the trolley on Potomac Ave and walk the length of Pioneer Ave to Brookline school.

Following grade school, we were off to South Hills High School (SHHS), again on the trolley. Instead of disembarking at the south hills junction, some of us would get off the street car on Carson St and take the incline up to Mt. Washington and walk a few blocks to SHHS. Fun memories!

Many may find it unusual and certainly not acceptable by today's standards, but the boys attending swim class at SHHS swam in their "birthday suits". Not sure when the Pgh Public School Board changed that policy, but it was still in force during the early 70's.

Now living in sunny Florida and having a fun look back in time.

Hello, Thanks for such a great site! Is there a way to get any of the pictures that I see on your F.B. page as I would love to have a few of them framed. Thank You, Vince,

Born and raised in Pgh. Home in Brookline on Norabell Ave. Really liked seeing Brookline pictures again, thanks for doing this site. Resurrection was good to see again. I went to St. Francis Academy for high school. Moved from Pgh, PA to Raleigh, NC in 1982.

Hello,

Hope this finds you well. I work with Maryville University, a nationally recognized private institution offering comprehensive and innovative education.

I came across your site while researching for relevant and informative pages. I saw you had a section with similar resources here:

Seeing your page, I thought that our resource would be a great addition. You can review it below:

I'm positive that your readers will find this interesting. Let me know if you can add it to your list? Thanks in advance!

I see no mention of busines such as Brookline News agency, a long standing business in Brookline. Wish I could better remember names but I can't. Delivered newspapers out of this establishment prior to WW-ll. Loved the owner. Another business lost was Bards, again can't recall names but do believe it was Carl and Blanch who ran the store. Just for your information.

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.
