Overview

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 their 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.

This book has a wonderful collection of Baltimore history. Each picture takes you back in time. Growing up in Baltimore, I know of many of the places and it is amazing the difference between then and now. I highly recommend this book to anyone who lives in Baltimore or loves history. It was beautifully written and researched. If I could give it more that 5 stars I would!
