Among a set of 26 WPA projects approved for Allegheny County, Pennsylvania in Sept. 1935 was “improvements and repairs at Josephine and Chicora streets school building” in East McKeesport, PA. The Federal government allocated $4,600 for the project and local sponsors contributed $2,557.
The precise location and present status of this project is unknown; Josephine St. and Chicora St. in East McKeesport do not intersect.
