Bayridge Avenue - 1924

Bayridge Avenue - 1924

This is Bay Ridge Avenue on October 9, 1924, looking from near Queensboro Avenue northwest towards Stebbins Avenue. The street had not yet been paved the sidewalks were still planks. The homes were new and there were still plenty of vacant lots to be filled.

Development in Brookline was booming during the 1920s, and many of the roads were being improved with sewers, sidewalks, and brick or block pavement. Bayridge would soon be transformed from a dirt path to a modern roadway.

The following City of Pittsburgh photographer photo collection shows Bay Ridge Avenue from several different locations on that autumn day in 1924.
