After the end of World War I and the recession that followed in 1919 and 1920, the Highland Park district experienced its second major building boom. By this time, the automobile had become a common sight on Pittsburgh’s streets, and had opened up for development areas of town that had previously been considered undesirable because of steep hillsides or distance from streetcar lines. Such areas in Highland Park – remote Cordova Road in the western section, the central section rising north of Bryant Street, and much of the hilly eastern part of the neighborhood – became the sites of the most intense construction activity.

In addition, the continuing growth of the city increased the pressure on the neighborhood for higher-density development. Double houses became more common, and some small apartment buildings were built, but the primary effect of this pressure was the demolition of large houses and the subdivision of their lots for new houses.

Thomas Bigelow’s mansion on N. Highland Avenue (across Jackson Street from his brother Edward’s house) was razed to make way for Wayne Road and sixteen houses.
