North Side (Pittsburgh)

North Side refers to the region of Pittsburgh, located to the north of the Allegheny River and the Ohio River. The term "North Side" does not refer to a specific neighborhood, but rather to a disparate collection of contiguous neighborhoods; the neighborhoods that make up the North Side of Pittsburgh include: Allegheny Center, Allegheny West, Brighton Heights, California-Kirkbride, Central Northside, East Allegheny, Manchester, Marshall-Shadeland, North Shore, Northview Heights, Perry North, Perry South, Spring Garden, Spring Hill–City View, Summer Hill, Troy Hill. The North Side has seven hills. In 1828, the borough of Allegheny, was incorporated where the North Side now stands, it had a population of 1,000. In 1880, Allegheny was incorporated as a city; the City of Allegheny was annexed by Pittsburgh in 1907, became known as the North Side. Historians claim that the Felix Brunot mansion on Stockton Avenue was once a station on the Underground Railroad, where fugitive slaves from the South stopped for food and shelter.

The Allegheny regional branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, located at 5 Allegheny Square, was the first tax-supported library in the United States. It is now closed to the public following a lightning strike on April 6, 2007. A new library opened nearby at 1230 Federal Street. Charles Taze Russell organized what are now known as Jehovah's Witnesses at a house in the old city of Allegheny. Mary Cassatt was born on Rebecca Street in 1844. Today, Rebecca Street has become Reedsdale Street. If the house had not been torn down for Highway Route 65, it would be facing Heinz Field, the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. lived at 1318 Arch Street when he created the original Ferris Wheel for the 1893 Chicago World's Columbian Exposition in an attempt to create something as impressive as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The first World Series was played at Exposition Park by the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Boston Americans in 1903. Gus & Yia-Yia's Iceball Stand, selling fresh popcorn and old-fashioned iceballs hand-scraped from a block of ice, has been in West Park since 1934.

The "orange concession stand with a brightly colored umbrella" is something of an unofficial Pittsburgh landmark during the summer months. A 20-acre Allis-Chalmers transformer factory provided as many as 2,600 jobs to the area from 1897 until closing in the Summer of 1975. 16th Street Bridge Allegheny Observatory Allegheny West historic district Andy Warhol Museum Carnegie Science Center Children's Museum of Pittsburgh Community College of Allegheny County Deutschtown historic district Heinz Field Manchester historic district Mattress Factory Mexican War Streets historic district located in Central North Side National Aviary PNC Park Randyland Riverview Park West Park List of Pittsburgh neighborhoods City of Pittsburgh's Central Northside page Feature in the Charleston Gazette Northside Leadership Conference

A lifelong teetotaller, Annan joined local club West Calder in August 1899, before moving onto Edinburgh club St Bernard's in May 1900. No Scottish league appearances are recorded for either club. In April 1902 he moved to Sunderland in the First Division of the English Football League, he made a solitary appearance at right back in 2–1 win over Notts County on 4 April 1903, in a season when Sunderland finished third, only a single point behind champions Sheffield Wednesday.

In January 1904 he moved on to Sheffield United, made his league debut for the "Blades" at left back in a 2–0 defeat at Everton on 9 January 1904. He made a total of nine appearances at full back, deputising for Harry Thickitt and Boyle in 1903–04. Annan made 18 appearances in 1904 -- 05.

Anadyrsk

Anadyrsk was an important Russian ostrog in far northeastern Siberia from 1649 to 1764. It was on the Anadyr River, near the head of small-boat navigation, about 300 miles upstream, 12 miles northeast of the present Markovo. In 1649 Semyon Dezhnyov built a zimov'ye here after being wrecked on the Pacific coast the previous year. In 1650 Mikhail Stadukhin and Semyon Motora arrived overland from the Kolyma River. In 1659 Kurbat Ivanov took over, build a proper stockade and made major improvements in administration. About 1697, Anadyrsk was the launching place for Vladimir Atlasov's conquest of Kamchatka; the local Chukchis and Koryaks were warlike, the post was attacked a number of times. Kennan reports its garrison through much of its service was a battery of artillery, its importance declined with the opening of the sea route through Okhotsk to Kamchatka in 1718. Subsequently, its importance was limited to interactions with the Chukchis. Concluding that attempts to collect tribute from the Chukchis were not a paying proposition, the Russian government of Catherine II ordered Anadyrsk abandoned in 1764.

In 1866, when it was visited by George Kennan, Anadyrsk consisted of four villages: Markovo, Pokorukov and Krepost. There were a priest. Krepost was the site of the Anadyrsk fort, on a bank about 30 feet above the level of the river, at that time consisted of a dozen log cabins, with no trace of the old fortifications visible. Markovo was about 15 versts upriver, Pokorukov a further 20 versts. Kennan described it as the Ultima Thule of Russian civilization. Chukchi people Bush, Richard J.
