Summary

Cambridge, Maryland, ideally located along the Choptank River, has been home port to people of every description, including Native Americans, patriots, and state governors to oyster pirates and their nemesis-the Maryland Oyster Navy. Today, Cambridge embraces the diverse cultures and rich past evident in its historic homes and buildings and exhibited in its museums. The city owes much to maritime and agricultural resources including oysters and crabs from the river and bay, and crops from the surrounding fields. The town's Colonial history, proximity to Chesapeake Bay, and dauntless spirit lend a certain charm that is distinctively Cambridge.Images and postcards culled from a variety of sources bring to life the vivid and varied past of one of Maryland's earliest settlements. This unique volume of vintage photos and memorabilia, with its well-researched captions, will engage young and old alike. Highlighted in this photo journal along with the oyster fleet, businesses, churches, and events are the ordinary and extraordinary people who make this area special.
