Camden Yards before Oriole Park... Pratt and Light before Harborplace... Howard Street bustling with well-dressed shoppers... The Jones Falls flowing freely to the harbor... Sometimes Baltimore's past is almost impossible to imagine; sometimes it's just across the street. Great buildings, beautiful bridges, wild landscapes, whole neighborhoods--all have been lost

Overview

Camden Yards before Oriole Park... Pratt and Light before Harborplace... Howard Street bustling with well-dressed shoppers... The Jones Falls flowing freely to the harbor... Sometimes Baltimore's past is almost impossible to imagine; sometimes it's just across the street. Great buildings, beautiful bridges, wild landscapes, whole neighborhoods--all have been lost to neglect or new construction. But much of old Baltimore still stands, and much more is preserved in local archives, family albums, and fond memories.

In this revised and expanded edition of his popular book, Mark B. Miller puts Baltimore's past and present side-by-side, showing historic photographs of the city next to recent photographs taken from the same vantage point. The result is a wonderful record of Baltimore's past--and an engaging guide to the historic buildings and features that survive today. This new edition of Baltimore Transitions adds several new views of Falls Road and the Jones Falls valley and one of Broadway looking south from Baltimore Street in 1890.
