Info. Request

Hello Friends of Hartwood,

I am trying to locate information about Booth and Flinn Construction. They were a large general contracting firm around the turn of century and built the Westinghouse Bridge, the Fort Pitt Tunnels, as well as the most of the cobblesone streets in Pittsburgh. Mary Flinn Lawrences' father was William Flinn. William Flinn was partners with Mr. Booth and was also a Pa. state Senator.

It is also thought that the company built the main house as well as stables and other outbuildings at Hartwood. I am trying to locate Booth & Flinn company records and documents for a project that I am working on.

If anyone out there has any info. to share please email me at the link provided at the right under my profile.

Thanks,
Jeff
