Introduction to Baltimore

This brief history of Baltimore was written by Frank R. Shivers, Jr., for his book Walking in Baltimore: An Intimate Guide to the Old City.

The illustrations are from the Enoch Pratt Public Library's Cator Collection of Baltimore Views, a group of nearly 200 etchings, watercolors, lithographs, 1752 to 1930.
