Victorian Street in Manchester



Manchester is a relatively poor neighborhood rich in Victorian architecture. Nowhere else in Pittsburgh are there so many uninterrupted blocks of Victorian rowhouses with elaborate front porches. The restoration of the neighborhood was a pet project of Richard Mellon Scaife, the eccentric billionaire owner of the Tribune-Review.


One thought on “Victorian Street in Manchester

  1. Is the church in the picture St. Joseph’s? I know St. Joe’s is no longer operating but I had my First Communion there in 1951.
