Here’s a wonderful photo of Brereton Street that was just added to the online Historic Pittsburgh Image Archive. The photo was taken in 1953 by Charles Richardson.

To the left of the church is 3060 Brereton, now the office of the Polish Hill Civic Association.  At the time, it was a shop that sold candy and cigars.
