Swepson Earle Lantern Slide Collection
This collection, from the Baltimore Museum of Art, includes 132 lantern slides depicting historic Maryland architecture and daily life in the Chesapeake Bay Region between 1923 and 1934. Swepson Earle (1879-1943) was the Maryland State Conservation Commissioner and served as liaison for the Federal Bureau of Fisheries. He authored The Chespeake Bay Country and Marylands Colonial Eastern Shore, which included the majority of the images from this collection. Many of the buildings no longer exist, making this collection extremely valuable to historians.
