Maryland in Photographs, 75 Years Ago

Tom speaks with author Constance Schulz and Baltimore Sun reporter Fred Rasmussen.

There’s a beautiful new book of photographs that chronicles life in MD in the 1930s and 40s.   It’s called Maryland in Black and White: Documentary Photography from the Great Depression and World War II. Tom Hall spoke about it with the author of the book, Constance Schulz, a professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina. He also spoke with Fred Rasmussen, a reporter at the Baltimore Sun for more than forty years. He wrote the foreword for the book. He used to write a column called Back Story, and is now part of the Retro Baltimore team.

Ms. Schulz will be talking about the book at the Pratt Central Library Thursday night. An exhibition of some of the photographs from the book will be on display at the Pratt for the next few months.
