    I guess you are a little late with this news, or the builder got underway before the permits emerged! Visiting the corner of 35th and W. Westmoreland today, I see that the structure is underway, showing the usual cheap construction. Adjoining the new houses are 16 three-story dwellings from the early 1870s, built by John Dobson, the co-proprietor of “Dobson Mills,” the major manufacturer whose enormous complex sat just across the (now) CSX rail line, which runs behind the new and old houses. Dobson also built the pre-1875 homes now on “Sugden’s Row” (formerly Dobson’s Old Row”) almost adjoining the new construction, as well as several stone buildings on the south side of W’land. Some of these were built as “back-to-back” dwellings, which Dobson knew from his youth in the industrial region of England. In fact, this disconnected stub of Westmoreland Street (3400) was a Dobson enclave, the houses rented to his mill workers. Until relatively recently, this was an almost hidden corner of the city. So far, at least, despite fervent development in the area, none of the historic houses have been demolished. This will likely change in time.

      Thanks for the extensive backstory. BTW, I remember you well from my days at Medical College of Pennsylvania class of 1980. A historian par excellence. A nephrologist par excellence.
