Bill & Kim Gandy in front of the Manchester Citizens Council building. The location of an Historic Manchester display.

The Allegheny City Historic Gallery is working with Manchester Citizens Council to create a make-shift Manchester Historic Gallery during the months of November and December in the reception room at MCC headquarters.  We will be displaying some of the best Manchester photos in our collection, and others.  It will be free to the public.

Winter of 1978/79 in the 1400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue. Included in the shot is John and Carol Wilson (Gonzalez) with son Luke Wilson.

We are still looking to bulk up our Manchester gallery both online and for public displays.  We’ve received several great images via Facebook but we are looking for more.  We are looking for family/personal photos from any era.  We currently have a shortage of African-American images and would like more to contribute.   Please inbox us your original family and historic photos with years, names and as much info that you can provide.  Your can inbox on our Facebook page or email it to us at

  1. Is it too late to send photos? Our uncle, Art Lowrie had a Funeral Home (James Lowrie & Sons) on Chateau St. until the highway too that side.
    Our grandfather Fred C. Ubinger also had a store on Beaver Ave., which his daughters continued after his death.

    I have a cousin looking for pictures, and if it is too late, I will tell her.

    Thanks and blessings,
    Sr. Jeanne Ubinger, OSB
