Enoch Pratt Free Library book wagon during visit to Dallas Street, Baltimore

1945 Photograph of the Enoch Pratt Free Library book wagon during a visit to the 1000 block Dallas Street in Baltimore, Maryland. Gathered around this horse-drawn wagon and looking over the books before making a selection are numerous African American children and adults. In the background on this cobblestone street are brick houses with shuttered windows, hanging baskets, window boxes with flowers, and outdoor tables and chairs.
