After my last post, a cousin asked if I have photos of this house. Yes, I do.
The house on the left-hand side was my grandparents' home. I don't have a date for this photo, but I'm guessing the 1940's.
According to my mother, there was a gate at the end of the driveway. Here is a photo from September 1940 of her and her sisters in front of the gate. They had probably just moved in.
There is a date on this photo of January 1956. You can see the Christmas wreath on the door. I'm not sure who the man is, possibly my grandfather?
In 1959, my grandparents moved back to the city (of Pittsburgh). I have a few snapshots taken of the house on that day. A. B. Pollock was the moving company.

I love that I can still recognize the house today. I may have driven by it once when visiting the area as a child, but at that age I didn't appreciate that I was seeing the home my mother grew up in.
