The creation of this website was motivated by a special program on Maryland Public Television: Images of Maryland, which aired in March and August 2000. There are now more than 3,950 archival images published on the website. Return often to see these incredible images from a truly gifted photographic talent. The Dynamic Mini-Gallery (on the home page) features more than 545 selections from the extensive online collection of more than 4,000 images.
