Amazing Lost Baltimore Streetcars

Digital Maryland has an amazing collection of historical photos and manuscripts that you should check out. Here is a particularly fascinating series of photos from 1915 showing the streetcars of the city. These eight photos are from the first volume of a three-volume set of images capturing Baltimore streets and streetcars, most likely at the request of the president of the United Railways & Electric Company.

Lexington St. & Charles St.
