Throwback Thursday: 'Resistance to Change'? Never!

By Jason Togyer | Posted in: History

I recently stumbled across an October 1949 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story about McKeesport, which includes this photo of two women standing at the intersection of Locust Street and Lysle Boulevard.
 
Except the street signs still bore the name "Jerome Boulevard," years after the street was renamed for Mayor George H. Lysle, who died in 1947.

"Street signs show a resistance to change," the caption says. What? Say it ain't so!
