This collection may depict the McGlannan family, headed by Mr. and Mrs. Walter A. McGlannan, the former a notary public with the Baltimore insurance firm of Lawford and McKim. In 1910, the family’s home was at 2005 Madison Ave. in Baltimore. The large family included sons Edgar H., Walter L., Francis M., and Austin J., and daughters whose married names would be Mrs. Richard J. Riley, Mrs. Joseph V. Jeradi, Mrs. George R. Fisher, Mrs. Frederick G. Henkel, and Mrs. Richard T. Lynch.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of 1 box with 1 folder containing 27 photoprints, taken in Baltimore and Garrett County, ca. 1910. The photos may have been removed from an album. The images are not captioned, but include many informal individual and group portraits of McGlannan family members and friends in urban and park settings. There are images of people in a horse-drawn carriage, an automobile, and disembarking from a train, and of young women in graduation gowns and clowning for the camera – e.g., doing handstands or perched in a tree.

Note: Accession records mention an additional photo album containing 54 photoprints, but this was not found and may have been returned to the donor.


The photographs have not been assigned PP catalog numbers, and have not been sorted by subject. Inventory not available.
