    That drawing looks like a typical house on the Southside of Pittsburgh. You enter at street level and go up 4 flights of stairs and exit on another street level !!!

    Peter Liebach, Aged Miser, Found Murdered In Squalid Shack; Slayer Fails to to Get Loot Neighbors Hear Screams in Night; Northside "Silas Marner" Murdered by Robbers Leaves Fortune Valued At $50,000 to $75,000. Cantankerous old Peter Liebach, Pittsburgh's most colorful miser and eccentric who lived in squalor and poverty and hoarded the pennies he earned selling herbs and mint,' although he had between $50,000 and .$75,000 in the bank, came to his death early yesterday by the same violence he displayed for years toward neighbors and strangers who tried to show him kindness. Police found the 80-year-old man murdered in bed in his two-room, vermin-infested shack atop a sheer 75-foot cliff in the 1400 block of Madison avenue, where he had led a hermit's existence since his brother Peter's shack despite his protests and forced him to clean it and make it habitable. But Peter's nature wasn't changed so easily as that, and soon he was back in his slovenly ways, hoarding even his allowance. Heirs Live in Illinois. The Colonial Trust Company, which holds Peter's money, yesterday revealed it was in cash, Government bonds and mortgages. He was paid $30 a month for his needs. Last night trust company officials had communicated with Mrs. W. F. Lloyd and her two nephews, of Laclede, whom they said are Peter's heirs. Mrs. Lloyd is a daughter of Peter's brother. Peter used to break into newsprint frequently after his disagreeable experience with police and the courts. Once, about 20 years ago, Old Peter's face, nose and lips had been battered and bruised, and he lay almost within reach of the Civil war musket he kept to guard against robbers and often used to frighten children and strangers who ventured too near his shack. A towel and an old pair of pants had been knotted loosely around his feet. The hemorrhages from his beating, an autopsy revealed, choked the old man to death. Neighbor Hears Screams. His assailants, who overlooked $32 in bills hidden in the leaves of a second reader published in 1871, " and apparently got nothing else, fell on old Peter about 4:20 o'clock in the morning. For Mrs. Ora Johnson, who lives across the street, was awakened by screams at that hour. Later her daughter saw a dark figure outlined against the whitewashed cellar wall
