Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Since photography was invented in 1839, Baltimore has grown more than sixfold and been the scene of numerous booms and busts. This addition to Turner Publishing's well-edited Historic Photos series spotlights a metropolis that earned nicknames ranging from "Mobtown" and "Monument City" to "Comeback City" and our favorite, "The City That Reads."
The Baltimore Sun
Photography is a mirror with a memory. That's how Mark Walston sees it in this exquisite book of photographs and short essays. Offering both a history of photography and of Baltimore, Walston evokes Baltimore's rich past from Fells Point, which was once the nation's second-busiest immigration port, just after Ellis Island, to its tailor shops, which rivaled those of New York City. Gathered from a wide range of sources (including the Library of Congress, Harvard Library and the Baltimore Camera Club), these nearly 200 black-and-white photographs span Baltimore during the 19th and 20th centuries. A Maryland historian, Walston knows how to make history a picturesque and memorable read.
