A city of active industry and commerce which preserves despite its progress something of an atmosphere of deliberateness—almost conservatism, a city of busy factories, piers, railroad stations, offices, office buildings, shops and markets from which almost every worker goes home to his own hearth,—this, in brief, is Baltimore. Seen from the air, it is for the most part a cluster of flat-roofed dwellings hugging the two branches of the Patapsco River, which here is nothing more nor less than an estuary of the Chesapeake Bay. Around the winding shore line are miles and miles of wharves, factories and railroad yards.
