This second volume includes historic images of a raging flood in Point of Rocks and a devastating Frederick barn fire.

It shows the thumbprints of pivotal national events in photographs like those of a German POW camp in Frederick. It glimpses into more personal moments in time as well: two young friends clowning around on a rooftop in 1930, students studying in their 19th century classroom, and the Colored Order of the Knights of Pythias gathering for a convention in 1925. Also featured are personalities like U.S. senator Charles “Mac” Mathias, musician Bion Firestone, and “Uncle Billy” Hilton, the “pretzel man,” along with sports teams, students, congregations, organizations, and businesses that make up who we are and what we have become as a community.
