Asthe city grew, a wide variety of industries were established.Railroads, ports, manufacturing sites, and public infrastructure, such as power plants, fundamentally transformed large swaths of Baltimores landscape. However, the second half of the 20th century saw a dramatic and often traumatic restructuring of the citys economy- individual businesses and entire industrial sectors downsized, relocated, or completely collapsed.

Today many such areas of Baltimore have changed radically as abandoned manufacturing sites have been demolished or converted to new uses. Images of America: Industrial Baltimore documents a vital component of the citys working past through historic photographs of the people and sites that made the city an essential economic engine of the Industrial Revolution.
