About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Boys on Tour To Advertise
Petersburg, Va., Reach City

Three Youths Will Visit Mayor Today
—Expect To Go To Atlantic City.

Three boys who are advertising their city—Petersburg, Va.—arrived in Baltimore yesterday. They are making their tour on bicycles and have visited Bowling Green, Fredericksburg, and Alexandria, Va., and Washington. They plan to complete the trip August 20, when they expect to arrive at Atlantic City.

Today the boys—Stuart A. Shortt, Elliott A. Smith and John W. Ayers—will visit Mayor Jackson and A.S. Goldsborough, executive secretary of the Baltimore Association of Commerce. They are carrying pamphlets explanatory of Petersburg's growth as an industrial city.

Their visit to Baltimore will be lengthened in order that Shortt may receive treatment from Dr. William S. Baer for an injured leg.
