Homestead, The Households of a Mill Town, was first published in 1910 as one volume in the classic Pittsburgh Survey,  and describes daily life in a community that was dominated economically and physically by the giant Homestead Works of the United States Steel Corporation. Homestead, just across the Monongahela River from Pittsburgh, developed as a completely separate city - a true mill town settled by newer immigrants and shaped in its attitudes by the infamous Homestead Strike of 1892. This edition includes a new foreword by Tom Waseleski, a journalist formerly of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, and features cover art by Pittsburgh artist Ron Donoughe.
