Thanks to Jim Hartman from the Mifflin Historical Society, I have found a wonderful resource to research all types of history about Duquesne. In order to be able to allow you to read the various stories, I will provide a brief “snapshot” of the story and a link for you to click on and connect to the story. The stories are primarily from old Pittsburgh Press and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspapers. I certainly hope that you’ll enjoy these tidbits of local news! Be sure to let me know if you enjoy these articles!
I love this story about life in Duquesne from the January 17, 1941 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The headlines boast ‘THE REVIVAL REACHES DUQUESNE!” There are two full pages of photos and articles about Duquesne’s mills and how they were experiencing a resurgence. We all know the current conditions in Duquesne today, so it was so nice to read about a time when life was great. Remember to click on the blue “CLICK HERE TO READ ARTICLE” after each picture to read the stories.
I hope you enjoy the stories. Please make sure you let me know if you’d like more. Keep reading my friends!
