This collection of photographic prints and negatives contains images of Baltimore buildings, monuments, street
scenes and panoramas taken by Blakeslee-Lane, Inc.

Blakeslee-Lane was founded by two newspaper photographers, George Walton Blakeslee, Sr. and Horace P. Lane, formerly of the Baltimore News.

Their studio soon gained the trade of the city’s major department stores: Hecht’s, Hutzler's, Stewart's and
Hochschild-Kohn. As a result of their success, they moved to 343 St. Paul Street and took on a third partner,
Theodore C. Andersen. After World War II, the studio became a Midtown fixture at 916 North Charles Street.

In addition to its traditional work, the studio created large-scale mural versions of regional photography to
decorate restaurants, banks and other businesses.

The collection was donated to the Special Collections department of Langsdale Library in 1980.
