Mt Vernon Lithograph

Mt. Vernon Lithograph
Originally uploaded by Dave G..
I've been slowly amassing a collection of Hampden photos, maps and so forth, which I'll be posting periodically. Many of them are available at the Baltimore County Legacy Web. This is a ca. 1860 lithograph of the Mount Vernon Mills, made by the A. Hoen co. In the foreground are shown a number of mill worker houses. I'm a little perplexed as to which direction this was taken from. It seems that the artist has flattened the topography considerably and broadened the streets. Feel free to post comments about the image. Also, If you have photos of Hampden, historic or otherwise, that you'd like to share, please drop me a line.
