Description

View of McKeesport, Allegheny County, P.A., 1893 / drawn & published by Otto Krebs’ Sons & Co.

This colorful panoramic print of McKeesport, Pennsylvania and vicinity was drawn by H. Morgenroth and published by Otto Krebs’ Sons & Co. in 1893. McKeesport was established near the confluence of the Monongahela and Youghiogheny rivers in the late 1700's by John McKee, who ran a river ferry service there. Bituminous coal began to be mined in the vicinity of McKeesport in the 1830's. Steel mills were prominent fixtures in McKeesport since the 1850's. The growing iron and steel industry led many to settle in McKeesport during that era. The borough was incorporated as a city in 1891.

The illustration shows buildings and bridges and includes railroad and river traffic.
