About

This site was created because of the old Pittsburgh maps published so long ago.  These maps were overlayed on each other and the Pittviewer was born (see it live here): http://peoplemaps.esri.com/pittviewer

When the maps were stiched together, I often wondered if the places on these maps still existed, or moved, or are they gone forever?  This blog is a way to find out more about these places, and take a closer look at details long forgotten.  I encourage anyone with information about these sites to post and even suggest new ones!
