Baltimore at Work and at Play
Baltimore at Work and at Play:
July 6, 2004 - September 26, 2004
An exhibition of photographs from the collection of Kristin Leopold featuring images of eary-to-mid-20th century Baltimore, taken by her grandfather, free-lance photographer Harry B. Leopold, who began his career with the Baltimore Sunpapers. From the city's working inner harbor to the baseball stadium and fairground, Leopold captured the spirit of "Charm City" at work and at play from the 1920s into the 1940s.
Leopold also photographed The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus during this period, and selections from the university archives portray the early days of the library in Gilman Hall and the original Homewood House Museum, which opened in the 1930s.Acknowledgments
We wish to thank Harry Leopold's granddaughter Kristin Leopold for her generosity in exhibiting the photographs from her personal collection.
This exhibit would not have been possible without the support of the Friends of the Libraries and the assistance of the following individuals:
James Stimpert, Archivist
Sophia K. Jordan
