  • Asbestos Siding in McKeesport

    We often see diamond-shaped asbestos-cement siding like this in neglected neighborhoods, but seldom in such good shape. Note that this old house, which old Pa Pitt would tentatively date to the 1870s, has also preserved its fine Victorian woodwork in front. The original wood siding can still be seen under the porch roof.

    The splendid Queen Anne mansion next door looks as though it needs a new roof, but is otherwise in a good state of preservation.
