It seems that everytime someone asks me to find something for them, I find a lot more undocumented stuff. While researching information concerning the properties at Ashland, which is Northwest of the Loch Raven Dam, Baltimore, Md., I came upon a full scale drawing of the dam. I had posted a few years ago, one of my favorite photographs:
This is the photographer’s studio showing the artist’s rendition of what the dam would look like when construction is completed in 1922. All the supplies for developing the film/glass plates are on the shelves.
Later I would find a lantern slide of just the drawing.
Yesterday I found a colorized drawing. It is fairly beat up. So glad I was able to scan it.

Excellent finds as usual Ron! Glad I could give you a reason for the distraction!
