About the Book
Southside Pittsburgh is an image poem to a section of the city reborn and transformed from the rubble of a prior industrial time, yet still maintaining the unique flavor of those times. I remember vividly those foul smelling mornings as a student at The University of Pittsburgh when the smoke from The J&L Southside Steel Works wafted up to the Oakland campus. That's all gone now. We will take you on a journey of the section as it is today.
