Publisher Description

Homestead and Mifflin Township shows an era of days gone by through the medium of postcards. Mifflin Township was one of the seven original townships when Allegheny County was formed, and it covered the Monongahela River as well as the present-day communities of Clairton, Duquesne, Dravosburg, Hays, Homestead, Jefferson Hills, Lincoln Place, Munhall, Pleasant Hills, West Elizabeth, West Homestead, West Mifflin, and Whitaker. The original Mifflin Township ran along the Monongahela River from Hays (Six Mile Ferry) to present-day West Elizabeth. The area began as a quiet farming community in the 1850s but had become a great industrial steel giant by the dawn of the 20th century. Local steel mills produced vast quantities of rail, structural steel, and armaments for both world wars. This collection shows Homestead and Mifflin Township's industrial achievements, architecture, and places of entertainment.
