Neville Island

Gia Tatone and Dan Holland, with Neville Green, the island's environmental group, wrote this 2008 book, part of Arcadia Publishing's Images of America series. This five-mile island in the Ohio River was officially named in 1856. Because of its fertile soil, it became known as the market basket of Pittsburgh. The Dravo Corporation, which moved there in 1901, became the largest inland boat works in the United States.
