Baltimore in the Roaring Twenties: The Emergence of a Modern Industrial City

Few cities in the 1920s changed more than Baltimore. While the population enjoyed the amenities of a post-world war life, businesses were finding a perfect climate to locate operations in Baltimore. Proctor and Gamble, Western Electric, and Glenn L Martin were just three of many businesses that made major industrial commitments to the city and region. People were tuning into radios, driving their new automobiles, visiting vaudeville and motion picture theaters and watching air operations at Colgate field from the Riverside Electric Park. They rode the cars of the United Railways Company from thousands of new row houses built each year, or joined the exodus to suburbia at Roland Park or points beyond.
