The city of Baltimore underwent redevelopment, known as Urban Renewal, in the 1960s and 1970s. From plans begun in the 1950s, the city demolished structures and built new ones in selected areas that were considered blighted. These included many residential areas, as well as the part of the downtown business district. In general, from the 1950s through the 1970s, many areas of Baltimore, both city and county, saw development as the citys population shifted from the center to the suburbs. Areas which once had a rural or small-town character became more urbanized. The removal of the citys streetcars in ca. 1963 changed the landscape, as did the construction of major roads such as the Beltway and the Jones Falls Expressway.
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Naylor, Jr., 1985 (000805).
Scope and Contents

Sites include Falls Road, Reisterstown Road, Joppa Road, and Belvedere Ave. areas, downtown before and after development at Hopkins Place, the Jones Falls Expressway, and the area near Park Ave. and Dolphin St. There are also some images of streetcars during their last years of operation in Baltimore.
