History 

The Hutzler Brothers Co. department store was founded in 1858 in Baltimore, by Moses Hutzler (1800-1889) who came to Maryland from Hagenbach in Bavaria, Germany in 1838. In the mid-1850s, Hutzler and his sons Abram, Charles and David did business at several sites, including retail stores on Eutaw St. and on Howard St. at Clay St., and a wholesale business on Baltimore St. The Eutaw St. store remained in operation until 1875, but after the Civil War, the family focused their attention on the Howard Street store, closing the wholesale outlet.

By the 1880s, larger quarters were needed for the expanding department store, leading to the construction of the Palace Building on Howard St. by 1888, designed by leading Baltimore architects Baldwin and Pennington. This building became the nucleus of a complex that would develop over the next 60 years, including by the 1940s the ten-story North Building, parking facilities, and offices and additional retail spaces on Saratoga and Eutaw Streets.

Keeping up with the suburbanization of the Baltimore metropolitan area after World War II, Hutzler's developed the Towson store in 1952 at Dulaney Valley and Joppa Rds., and the Eastpoint store in 1956 at Eastern Ave. and North Point Rd. In Hutzler's centennial year, 1958, the Westview store opened at the intersection of Baltimore National Pike (Route 40) and the Beltway. Centennial celebration activities went on throughout the year in 1958, a highlight being a Centennial Exposition in late February at the Main (Howard St.) store featuring exhibits and demonstrations.

Collection Origin

Gift of Hutzler Brothers Co., 1980 (76148) and 1990 (002845).

Scope and Contents 

The collection consists of ca. 1500 items housed in 7 boxes, undated or created in ca. 1930s-1960s. Some of the photographs were made by the Blakeslee-Lane photography studio.

Subjects encompass many aspects of the Hutzler Brothers and Co. department store on Howard St., as well as branch stores at Towson, Eastpoint, and Westview. Images include buildings, retail departments within stores, merchandise and displays, service vehicles and buildings, events in the stores including anniversary celebrations, fashion shows, and seasonal or theme events, and activities in the store during World War II. Some events featured local and national celebrities such as Buddy Deane, Johnny Unitas, WBAL-TV personalities, and Lauren Bacall. There are also images of typical Baltimore scenes and subjects, evidently taken for Hutzler's publications, including crab cookery and feasts, and sports teams such as the Orioles, Colts and Bullets with fans celebrating victories. 

Note: The collection also includes a large quantity of non-photographic materials from the 19th and 20th centuries, including scrapbooks, films, sound recordings, currency, pamphlets, printing blocks and ephemera such as invitations, store announcements, posters, certificates, greeting cards, diary books, calendars, bags, menus and recipes.

Note: Related materials are found in the Manuscripts Department of the Maryland Historical Society: MS. 476 and 476.1, the Hutzler Papers; and in MS. 2691 and 2746, the Hutzler Brothers Company Papers and Supplement.
