Baltimore in the Roaring Twenties—The Emergence of a Modern Industrial City:  
In an era of change, few cities in the 1920's changed more then Baltimore.  From a mercantile trading based community, Baltimore became an industrial powerhouse.  While the population enjoyed the amenities of a post-world war modern life, businesses were finding a nearly perfect climate - social, political, labor force, geographic - to locate operations in Baltimore, a dynamic, growing city a time when throwing off convention was part of the new social fabric.
