History

With the population of Baltimore approaching 500,000 at the end of the 19th century, the city still had no public sewers. Instead, a combination of wells, private sewers, and gutters carried waste away, most of it destined for the Patapsco Basin. In 1906, the state of Maryland finally prohibited Baltimore from discharging sewage into the Chesapeake Bay or any of its tributaries, and provided $10,000,000 for a sewerage system, with a matching amount for the project coming from the city on a bond issue. Under Mayor Edwin Clay Timanus, the city began construction of the sewer system, and the project was continued by Mayors J. Barry Mahool and James Harry Preston. By 1911, the Back River disposal plant opened on the eastern edge of the city, and by fifteen years later the city had constructed 1200 miles of sewer leading to the plant.

Meanwhile, above the ground, development of Baltimore's infrastructure of streets and railroads was continuing, with the creation of the Paving Commission in 1911, directed by R. Keith Compton. The commission's primary mission was to resurface the streets of Baltimore with sheet asphalt. One of its first contracts awarded was for paving Preston St. behind the Fifth Regiment Armory in time for the Democratic National Convention to be held there in 1912.


Collection Origin

Source unknown (Accession 004672?).


Scope and Contents

The collection consists of 1 box with 15 folders containing 245 photoprints made in 1908-1924. The set of photoprints was originally a photo album, but has been disassembled; the images remain mounted onto cloth sheets. Some photographs were made by J.W. Schaefer, Edgar Schaefer, J.F. Reed, or Eckman and Brown. Most photographs are captioned as to location and dated.

While the focus of the photographers as evidenced by caption text was on new construction or the conditions of existing infrastructure (tracks, tunnels, pavement and sidewalks), the collection forms an excellent record of numerous city streets, including residential, commercial and industrial districts, as well as transportation in the city, especially street railroads of the United Railways and Electric Company of Baltimore. Many photographs show pedestrians and construction workers, including African Americans.

There are a few images of street railroad infrastructure from other states: Minnesota and Louisiana.
