  1. Just an FYI- the last photo on the page- that you’ve tagged as the J&L North Side works- it is actually their Eliza Mill on second avenue. Someone may have incorrectly assumed it was the “north side” because the opposite side of the Monogahela River is known as the”South Side”. However, the North Side in Pugh is actually on the other side of the Allegheny River.

    The site is great, though- fabulous high res images. Thanks for pulling these together.
