Incorporated in 1827, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O) was one of America’s first railroads. The B&O’s creation was a tangible symbol of the Industrial Revolution, representing commerce and progress to towns along its route. This book contains images of well-known stations in Maryland, including Ellicott City Station, Gaithersburg Station, Camden Station, and the Mount Clare Shops—a self-contained industrial city, now home to the B&O Railroad Museum. Written by David Shackelford, chief curator of the B&O Railroad Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate in Baltimore, Maryland. All of the 200 images used for this project were selected from the Hays T. Watkins Research Library. Softcover, 128 pages.
