Broadway Avenue in Beechview - 1906

Broadway Avenue looking towards the North - 1906

Broadway Avenue in Beechview near the turn of the century, in 1906. Beechview borders Brookline to the west, with West Liberty Avenue as the dividing line. Both the Brookline and Beechview neighborhoods have had similar pasts, and most Brookliners have ties to friends or relatives in the neighboring community.

Broadway Avenue is similar to Brookline Boulevard. It is the Main Street of the Beechview community. This photo shows a trolley car heading south on Broadway towards downtown Pittsburgh. The street heading downhill to the left is Coast Avenue.
