'Baltimore: When She Was What She Used to Be' takes an affectionate look back at the city during an earlier era. More than 250 handsome vintage photographs and a selection of period newspaper and magazine stories recapture a bygone time with warmth and fidelity. Using never-before-published photographs reproduced with care and craftsmanship, Mame and Marion Warren capture the essence of American city life from the Civil War to the Great Depression: its joys and sorrows, the growth of industry and institutions, how a city worked and how it took its leisure, tranquil parks and bustling wharfs, change and continuity. This is a book to reward the attention of anyone interested in Baltimore itself or in the use of photographs to weave a story--and cast a spell--replete with history, nostalgia, and humor.
