Shadyside is a neighborhood in the East End of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. It has three zip codes (15206, 15213, and 15232) and representation on Pittsburgh City Council by the council member for District 8 (East Central Neighborhoods). Shadyside is drawn from the name of a 19th-century Pennsylvania Railroad station in the area, which was named for its shady lanes.

The suburb of Shadyside was established in the middle of farmland during the late 1860s when the Shadyside train station opened. As Pittsburgh grew into the world’s preeminent industrial city, Shadyside became the home of many influential men of the industrial age. Rapid change struck Shadyside early in the 20th century when commerce sprouted up around the perimeter of the neighborhood to cater to the residents’ demand for luxury goods and services. Within another decade industry moved in, especially close to the train tracks, and in 1915, the Ford Motor Company assembly plant opened in Shadyside. Through more than 200 vintage photographs, Pittsburgh’s Shadyside chronicles the personalities, places, institutions, and events that transformed a farming community into an affluent industrial-age suburb and diverse city neighborhood.

Really interesting, well written book. Fascinating photos and well researched insights into the neighborhood and evolution of Pittsburgh. A real must for anyone just moving to the area (like us) or indeed anyone who has lived here a while. Great connection to the past and explanation of the present. Highly recommend.

Most of the Images of America books that I have purchased have been excellent reference sources. This one is at the top of the list. Some may think there are too many pictures of the Spencer family, but I enjoyed the glimpse into family life in a bygone era so much so that I will be purchasing The Spencers of Amberson Avenue next. So many of the fine old homes pictured in the book have fallen to "progress," but enough of them remain that I plan to do a driving tour of Shadyside with Pittsburgh's Shadyside as my tour guide. I highly recommend the book to all interested in the history of Pittsburgh.
