Braddock Photo Tour

Historic Braddock, PA Photo TourMy original title for this tour was to be "The Grand Homes of Braddock," but then I decided that some of the modest mill homes were interesting, too, and of course so was the remaining commercial architecture and the Carnegie Library. In fact, there are so many notable buildings in Braddock that the town defies its reputation as a cheaply-built neighborhood of "substandard" worker housing. Surprises abound in Braddock and one would be foolish to generalize what this town is about -- whether it relates to its architecture or long history of decline.
