Description: Union Square Park, with its fountain and band shell, is in West Baltimore.
Date: originally cited as c. 1930 - actually sometime after 1976
UPDATE: The 1930 date is for the founding of the Blakeslee-Lane Studio.
The date of photo would be sometime after the fountain was replaced 1976 (the image does not show the original fountain) and the photographer's retirement in 1980. Thanks to Betsy Blades for prompting this correction.
Photographer: Blakeslee-Lane Studio
