    Thank you for this remnant of the area history! I grew up in Bethel Park next to ‘Coverdale’, a mining town that, like Mine 3 (back then we called that area ‘Maulnire’) had a huge slag pile.
    Could you research Coverdale’s beginnings please?

    I really enjoyed reading that Bev. So different from today where it is hard to pull the same aged child from a computer, tablet or television. We made our own amusement and I remember drawing a flower on every cobble on the road as we made our garden to complement the home we had drawn on the footpath to play happy families. So many other imaginative games we played and I’m sure we were better off for it. It brought us an independence so many of todays little ones lack and we learnt at an early age to use our imagination. Those were the days!

    I am a former Pittsburgh, moved to Phoenix, AZ in 1954, however my heart is still in Pittsburgh. Last visit was July 2017. Have many, many memories of my birthplace; Pittsburgh, North Hills, Homewood=Brushton area and Wilkinsburg. Was disappointed when we moved here and I couldn’t hear the Pirates ballgames. Am an avid Steelers fan and looking forward to a great season coming up. Remember the 1950 snow storm, had to walk home from East Liberty to Brushton – transportation was halted. Still love my heimet lund, may take another trip, but I’m 91 years old and not traveling much.

    I believe our house sits on part of Mine 3. My husband found a hand made sign that says “picnic today”, at the top of our yard. The giant slag pile is a short walk from ou yard.
