Baltimore's rich diversity is represented by its many neighborhoods--95 at last count. Some neighborhoods meander for several city blocks while others claim only a few. This volume of vintage postcards provides unique glimpses into the past of many of Baltimore's neighborhoods. Included are the elegant homes of Roland Park, Guildford, and Sherwood Gardens; the workingman's Highlandtown, South Baltimore, and Locust Point; the streetcar suburbs of Mount Washington, Overlea, Ten Hills, and Hunting Ridge; and the city park-anchored communities of Patterson Park, Federal Hill, and Gwynns Falls. Readers will find no two communities alike.

Author Biography
