Pictures of Clairton in the Early Days
Clairton’s existence began just after the turn of the 20th century when the Crucible Steel Company acquired a large tract along the west side of the Monongahela River, about 13 miles (21 km) south of Pittsburgh. Soon after, the Carnegie Steel Co. (later U.S. Steel) built an integrated steel mill and coke production facility, which eventually became one of the world's largest.
Although the following video has nothing to do with Clairton, it does have something to do with History and I could just imagine people skating around Clairton like this....Click on the photo and enjoy!

The CHS class of 1932 did not have a year book due to the Depression, but Margaret Barnes Brown Norris saved the newspaper article with all the photos. Betsy, her daughter, has kindly shared the clipping with us. (scanned in 9 parts)
