Historic Pittsburgh

Historic Pittsburgh catalogues the history of one of my favorite cities. Here you'll find census records for Pittsburgh (1850-1880) and Allegheny City (now the North Side) (1850-1870), 521 books about the city and Commonwealth, 1,122 plat maps of the Greater Pittsburgh area, and thousands of historical photographs. You can explore the photographs by time, location, or the collection to which they belong, or browse through images arranged under four headings: Pittsburgh at Work, Pittsburgh at Play, Pittsburgh at Home, or Pittsburgh Personalities.
