Electricity Comes to Baltimore: Changing Lives and Lifestyles – Modern Baltimore arrived when delivering power through wires became a reality. Lighting – first along streets, then inside buildings and finally in homes – pushed gas into the past. Electrical power for machinery and factories modernized manufacturing, adding speed, reliability and flexibility despite adding often-misunderstood dangers from this new power source. This is the story of how the city and her citizens adopted and adapted to the decades it took to truly electrify Baltimore.
