A City In Motion: Baltimore’s Planes, Trains and Automobiles (and a few ships)
Tuesday, January 26, 2021 @ 7 pm Zoom
Baltimore began as a center for exchange and trade, but the city reinvented itself as the demands and opportunities of the times changed. Over the last 300 years, Baltimore has moved from an agrarian export center, to an industrial giant, and prospers today as a logistics hub. Baltimore’s citizens hewed and sailed wooden, then steel, ships, built and operated a half dozen railroads, designed and drove electric, steam, and gasoline powered cars, and manufactured aircraft from man’s first days of taking to the air. This is the story of where we have been and how we got there: a history of a city in motion.
