    I took this picture in my passenger side mirror while I was stopped at a light. It's not as good of course as the photo by the qunitessential Baltimore photographer A. Aubrey Bodine's poster Arabbers(taken c. 1940)

    ('Arabbing' is a term used to describe the activities of a group of small scale entrepreneurs -- mostly Black and male -- who for more decades than anyone can remember have hired horses and carts to carry a variety of food items to the neighborhoods of Baltimore. -- from a 1994 editoiral in the Baltimore Afro-American).

    Arabbing is on the decline because the PETA people try to get them put out of business because they say they are cruel to their horses, and the stables are demolished for urban renewal.

    Baltimore is a Blue-Collar Town

    Being one of the most important ports on the East Coast, Baltimore is much more of a Blue Collar town than Washington D.C.. Here are some of the city's hardest workers down at the Coast Guard Yard.
