Meet Charles Succop, a local historian who features lots of Pittsburgh history on his three Instagram accounts: @pghthenandnow, @pittsburghistory (the H is deliberately missing) and @hiddenhousespgh. An intern at the city archives, Succop shares what document is the oldest in the collection and he reveals some parallels between the arguments presented in city council today and the council's records from our past. Our curiosity was piqued by the idea of a hidden house, which Succop explains is a house that has been modified to a commercial space (see: the Daily Bread on Roup Ave. and Penn Ave. in Garfield) Plus, we shoutout Adda Coffee and Tea’s new location in Garfield and Olive and Marlowe’s flavored vinegars.
