Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.

Ambridge 1920

Ambridge 1920

A number of new industries are to be found along Duss Avenue from 11th Street to beyond the town's northern borders and the demand for new housing and supporting businesses continues to grow. The population in 1924 is 15,000 people.

While autos are becoming more common and public transportation is available, workers tend to live within walking distance of their jobs.

The town will continue to expand physically for ten more years. The valley land will be filled and all but the steepest hills will have houses. Except for changes in tenancy, the Ambridge appearance will be virtually unchanged until the late 1950's
