The Names of Pittsburgh: How the City, Neighborhoods, Streets, Parks and More Got Their Names
Bob Regan mines the rich vein of Pittsburgh┐s history by continually finding a new lens through which to view the past. His previous two books┐The Steps of Pittsburgh and The Bridges of Pittsburgh┐were received with acclaim, drawing fans from the Pittsburgh diaspora around the world. The Names of Pittsburgh does the same as Regan explores the names of the men and women┐not to mention scientific paraphernalia, patents, astronomical terms, grape varietals, et al.┐from the region┐s history which dot the landscape. Each provides a segue into a broader discussion of some fascinating aspect of Pittsburgh┐s past.
