MT. SAVAGE
 







Bureau Evening Times Mt. Savage, Md., Feb 9.
"It is reported  that as soon as the weather will permit Road Commissioner James Findlay will put a large force of men to work on the county road starting at Mullaney Bros.' store and working eastward to a point below Barrellsville.  It is the intention of Mr. Findlay to put this piece of road in a first-class condition, such as is the old National  Pike between Cumberland and Frostburg.  This means a big outlay of money but it will be the cheaper way in the long run."

This picture was produced from a gelatin dry glass plate
(part of a collection of gelatin dry glass plate negatives that are maintained in the Carney Family papers.) 

In the lower right hand portion of the photo you can see a part of the Mullaney Brother's Store.
The building's exterior was made of white enamel brick (probably manufactured in Mt. Savage.)
In view of the fact that there is an electric power pole in the middle of what eventually would become part of
the Mount  Savage Road, the photograph must have been taken prior to the construction of the road referenced above.

The building directly behind the men in the wagon is the First National Bank
and the house next door is the Gallagher/Carney home. 

Note: the gelatin dry glass plate photography  process was developed  about 1880.  
It revolutionized  the world of photography because it allowed the photographer to take  pictures and develop them later.
