Overview

Called the "Charm City" and "The Best City in America" Baltimore is a city that has a great deal to offer visitors. The port of call for a dozen steamer lines and the starting point of one of the oldest railroads in the United States, Baltimore was wide open to the country and the country came right in. Whether it was for business or for pleasure visitors came to Baltimore in droves. See Fort McHenry where Francis Scott Key penned the words to "The Star Spangled Banner," crack open a crab in the Inner Harbor, take a peek at the burial place of Edgar Allan Poe, or spend the day at Pimlico Park. Over 200 vintage black and white and hand tinted postcards showcase some of the sights that have made Baltimore famous the world over. Enjoy the sites, the sounds, and the scenery and "Welcome to Bawlmore, Hon!"
