Thanks to an email from a friend in Pittsburgh I found out today that my grandmother Mary Flinn Lawrence is on the cover of the Summer 2011 edition of the Western Pennsylvanie History magazine published by the Heinz History Center.

Go to their website at to order your copy today. I ordered mine tonight and will post once I have read the article.

Enjoy your summer, these are the days we wished we had back in January!

Another pic of Braemar

I found this postcard dated 1906 on eBay. It clearly shows that Braemar was located to the right of the entrance to Highland Park. In the postcard Braemar is on the far right of the right entrance column.
Hint: To "supersize" the picture just click on it and it will make the picture much larger so you can see the details.

More pics to follow.

Braemar picture #2

This is another picture of Braemar that I found on eBay the other day. Braemar was located at the entrance of Highland Park. From other pictures I have seen it appears as if Braemar was the first house on the right when entering Highland Park. The physical address was 1455 N. Highland Ave. Pittsburgh, Pa. The house has long since been torn down, I am still trying to find the date when this occured.

Braemar picture #1

Here is an ad that I found one day while I was surfing the web. It is an ad from Architectural Digest from November 1921 featuring Seantor Flinn's home Braemar that is being used to advertise the gas boiler that was used in the home. I purchased the ad from a seller on eBay.
