Frances Benjamin Johnston Photographs of the U.S. Naval Academy

Cadets on the forecastle of the U.S.S. EssexThis collection of photographs of the United States Naval Academy was taken by Frances Benjamin Johnston in 1893. She captured both the institution and life of the cadets/midshipmen. Johnston graduated from the Notre Dame of Maryland Collegiate Institute for Young Ladies, and studied at the Académie Julian in Paris and the Washington Student League. She opened her own Washington, D.C. studio in 1894.

Dairy Barns of Montgomery County

James and Macie King Farm, Germantown, MarylandThis collection of photographs by Richard Rowe documents the history of dairy farming in Montgomery County. The B & O Metropolitan Branch gave a boost to dairy farming in the county and at one point in the 1950s, there were over 300 family-operated dairy farms. That number has rapidly declined and many of the barns captured by Rowe no longer exist.
