Baltimore City 19th-Century Photos update
- I've added a few more photos to the Baltimore City 19th-Century Photos Website. The surnames are Bennett, Copes, Schneider, Thomas and LaFevre. The image of David Bennett and F. L. Copes is a really nice one. This is a cased picture of two Civil War Union soldiers with a patriotic background that has been hand colored. A unique item.
Baltimore City Nineteenth-Century Photos is a collection of *identified* portraits of Baltimore residents, Baltimore scenes or images made in Baltimore Studios. Enjoy the photos and please let me know if you would like to contribute.

- It's been a while since the last public announcement about updates to Baltimore City 19th-Century Photos, although new images are added regularly.
Today, I've uploaded a number of interesting pictures. Some of the surnames include: Byer, Hesse, Muehlberger, Smoot and others.
The photo of Ella May Byer, a tintype of an infant is somewhat unique because it includes the mother's hand holding a baby bottle. The Smoot photos cover roughly 40 or more years and include a great grandfather and his great grandson.
One of my favorites, I've labelled "Smoot ... maybe." This is an 1890s photo made by a traveling photographer of a young couple on their front stoop. Lots of attitude!
