Here's a piece from the Tribune-Review which examines the history of Pittsburgh residential architecture, from the modest company-store row houses of the South Side and Lawrenceville to the Tudor-style mansions of Oakland, it's an interesting history.   Our neighborhood of Deutschtown was home to many German, Swiss and Austrian immigrants, and the housing stock that they constructed is still very much in evidence in the neighborhood today, especially on Lockhart and Avery Streets. Built from th 1850's through 1880's, these houses were well constructed row homes of the merchant class, and are home to new families to this day.
