2 Bowditch, Eden Unger. Images of America: Growing Up in Baltimore, A Photographic History.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2003). 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Chronicling the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the early 1900s through striking vintage photographs, Growing Up in Baltimore pays tribute to the enduring courage and spirit of children. In a city that has been, at once, blessed with a rich port and torn apart by war, filled with pristine parks and scarred by the ravages of industrial life, childhood has reflected the ever-changing times and culture in American life. From baseball games and trips to the zoo to schoolyard pals and amusement park rides, children explored the world around them. But the nostalgia and innocence of well-born youth mingled with the harsher realities that many boys and girls knew as thier daily lives -- laboring in the mills and factories, the haphazard destruction of fires and storms, the segregation of public places, the cold and hunger so keenly felt during the Great Depression... In its depiction of children at home and at play, at school and at work, Growing Up in Baltimore poignantly illustrates how much things have changed, and how children, in so many ways, will always be the same.

4 Cannon, Timothy L.; Gorsline, Tom; Whitmore, Nancy F. Pictorial History of Frederick, Maryland: The First 250 Years, 1745-1995.
Frederick, Maryland: Key Publishing Group, (1995). 
Quarto, softbound (slick, b&w photo. illus. wrappers), 272 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Frederick is an historic city distinguished by colonial and federal architecture in the heart of Maryland, founded in 1745 by English and German settlers. Visits by presidents Washington and Lincoln, the Marquis de Lafayette, and statesman Benjamin Franklin have laid the groundwork for our rich history. Frederick has not only survived the Revolutionary and Civil War eras, two World Wars, and numerous floods, but it has thrived. The Pictorial History of Frederick: The First 250 Years walks the reader/view through tow-and-one-half centuries of changes, charm, culture, architecture, and flavor of one of the most vibrant communities in the United States. The book contains more than 500 photographs, selected by the authors from some of the finest historic collections that exist in the area, depicting people, places, and events in Frederick's history. Every effort has been made to achieve high quality in copying and reproducing these fine collections., Many of the photographs have come from original sources, such as glass-plate negatives. The photos were reproduced using a computer digitizing the process that achieves a much higher qulity reproduction than simply taking a photograph of a photograph. The photographs in the Pictorial History were thoroughly researched by the authors, who have provided informative captions and text to accompany the photos. The result is a written as well as pictorial history of how Frederick came to be what it is today.

8 Liebel, Tom. Images of America: Industrial Baltimore.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2006). 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. From lower cover: Over the course of several centuries, Baltimore evolved from a Colonial-era port city to a thriving and dynamic city of nearly a million people at the conclusion of World War II. As the city grew, a wide variety of industries were established. Railroads, ports, manufacturing sites, and public infrastructure, such as power plants, fundamentally transformed large swaths of Baltimore's landscape. However, the second half of the 20th century saw a dramatic and often traumatic restructuring of the city's economy; individual businesses and entire industrial sectors downsized, relocated, or completely collapsed. Today many such areas of Baltimore have changed radically as abandoned manufacturing sites have been demolished or converted to new uses. Images of America: Industrial Baltimore documents a vital component of the city's working past through historic photographs of the people and sites that make the city an essential economic engine of the Industrial Revolution.

10 Whitmore, Nancy F. and Timothy L. Cannon. Frederick, A Pictorial History.
Frederick, MD: Frederick County Landmarks Foundation, (1988). Revised paperback edition. 
Quarto, softbound (stiff, slick, illus. white wrappers), 192 pp. Very Good, with light rubbing to spine. Illustrated with numerous photographs. From Foreword: Frederick makes an appeal to the imagination as well as to the mind. Because it is a blend of two cultures, the British who slowly worked westward from tidewater and the Germans who travelled south through the valleys of the Blue Ridge, it has a special flavor not found in other communities on the eastern seaboard. We can read the facts with interest and gain a deeper understanding of Americna history -- the expulsion of the Rector of All Saints Parish or the meeting of General Braddock with Benjamin Franklin and George Washington -- but the customs that capture the traditions of the past survive in Frederick to please as well as to inform. It is a good place to be, and this pictorial history is a good book that reflects and records its special character...
