For those who have read my artist statement which can be found on the tabs above, you know that my passion as a photographer extends to photographing architecture, historical buildings, settings and artifacts especially as they relate to our natural world. On some recent days off, KI and I toured around Maryland to visit some of its history.
We were amazed at how much Maryland is credited for during the Industrial Revolution-the heat process developed when canning oysters and other food, Noxzema cold cream, grain mills(which I have written about before), and umbrellas.
Baltimore also had the first power utility company in the US, the precursor to BG&E. Crimped bottle caps and Sweetheart cups are inventions from Baltimore! Who would have thought?
So along with the grain mills which supplied the colonies and the farms, like the one in Carroll County, pictured here, Baltimore has had many inventions.
My blog today honors Baltimore and Maryland’s contributions to our nation’s development and growth. Please enjoy this tribute.
And as always, thank you for supporting my work and for commenting. You can find more photos to view under the tab “Recent photos.”
