Last updated 3/8/2018 at 3:02pm
To celebrate the 25th year anniversary of the East Carson Street City Historic District, the South Side Community Council is teaming with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – South Side to collect stories about South Side’s main thoroughfare.
South Side Voices: Stories on Carson encourages residents with a story about an East Carson Street building to come to the library and tell their story. Among the buildings they are interested in are: South High School Apartments; Esser’s Floral Shop; Club Café; The Market House; South Bank Galleries; Amazing Books; Starbucks; Carson City Saloon; Beneficial Building; Nakama; Maul Building; The Milkshake Factory; PNC; Fat Head’s Saloon; Mallorca; CLP – South Side; or another building in the corridor.
The stories will be accessible digitally on the SSCC’s website, southsidecommunitycouncil.org, and potentially in a physical exhibit.
In addition to stories about the buildings, old photos, articles and documents are welcome, too.
The next collection date is on
Sunday, March 18, from noon to 4 p.m. at CLP – South Side, 2205 E. Carson Street.
