‘Vintage Auto Travel in the Maryland State Archives Special Collections, 1910-1965’ Will Be Featured Topic in Maryland History Virtual Presentation on Tuesday, May 17
“Vintage Auto Travel in the Maryland State Archives Special Collections, 1910-1965” will be the featured topic at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, in a virtual presentation sponsored by Maryland History. Maria Day, the senior director of special collections, conservation and library services at the Maryland State Archives, will host the presentation.
The forum will take a virtual field trip back in time to the early 20th Century to an era that Marylanders explored historic and scenic wonders of the State by automobile. The talk will include maps, photographs, commercial art, tour guides and other items from Maryland State Archives Special Collections, the State's holdings of private documents and culturally significant records.
The presentation spans a cross-section of automobile history across the State, from the earliest cars and paving of The National Road to post-war leisure travel and the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge
