Unknown Photos 1870 to 1945 Pittsburgh

A little backround about the pictures. None of my older relatives can identify anyone in these pictures. All of them came from one of three houses in Mt Oliver Borough. These three houses were the homes of my grandparents and great grandparents Mt. Oliver is a small borough complelely surrounded by the city of Pittsburgh. It is bordered by the South Side, Lower St. Clair, Knoxville and Carrick. All former separate boroughs, but today parts of Pittsburgh. The photographs roughly cover the time period of 1870 to 1945. I am guessing most of them were from 1900 to 1945. Most of them are snapshots with nothing to identify who they were. A few are professionally done and I have included a list of the photographers. The family names that might be assoicated with these pictures are MUTSCHLER, SCHMIDT, ROESCHENTHALER, SEEMILLER, HITE, KREIN, TURGI, HOFFMAN, ROSENBERGER, HORN, ACHMANN AND HIRSCH. If by any chance you have an identical pictures among you pictures perhaps we can get together somehow and identify them.
