MARYLAND IN BLACK AND WHITE: DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION AND WORLD WAR II. Constance B. Schulz. Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, 2013. 184 pp. with 104 ills. 26 x 21 cm. LC 2013-4816 ISBN 9781421410852 In English.
Publisher's description: Between 1935 and 1943, the United States government commissioned forty-four photographers to capture American faces, along with living and working conditions, across the country. Nearly 180,000 photographs were taken -- 4,000 in Maryland -- and they are now preserved in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. Constance B. Schulz presents a selection of these images in Maryland in Black and White. Maryland in the 1930s and early '40s truly represented a microcosm of America, a middle ground where beach and mountain, north and south, urban and rural, black and white, farmer and businessman, rich and poor, young and old met... Within these pages, the farms and coal fields of 1930s and '40s Western Maryland, the tobacco fields of Southern Maryland, watermen in wooden boats along the Eastern Shore, and smiling couples dancing at a wartime senior prom come back to life. These photographs reveal places we know but scarcely recognize and give us another look at the people of "the greatest generation."
