This morning, one of our friends, Jack Schalk commented on my recent post – Eastland – Always on our Minds
I left Duquesne in 1959 and never had a knowledge of Eastland or its environs. In my mind, I can’t even place the location from a map of the site. Cory Werling (above) mentioned that he could see Eastland from the top of Kennedy Ave in the evening and I just can’t relate to this vision. Does anyone have an older photo of the site prior to development as viewed from Duquesne?
Thanks to another of our friends, Bob Vislay, DHS Class of ’69, Jack and others can get a clear perspective of where the slag dump and eventually Eastland was located.
This is a picture looking down W. Grant Ave after the tornado of 1956:
