Introduction

The purpose of this blog is to post essays on neglected aspects of Baltimore City History intended  to demonstrate how underutilized archival resources can be mined to recall the forgotten lives and neighborhoods that were once a vibrant component of  the City of Promise.  In doing so, it is hoped that an effort will be made to preserve those resources in a permanently accessible environment, and that others will be encouraged to research and write about the city's rich and diverse past.  Only by knowing who we were and why can we fulfill the promise of what we can and ought to be.
