Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Inner Harbor Lofts
These large, elegant buildings, with oversized windows to allow more light, were a welcome relief from the small, back rooms of tiny houses where people had worked and lived among strong fumes and cuttings piled high on the floor.
The unskilled labor force of the garment industry was filled largely by women, who worked 16 hour shifts for less than a dollar a day.
Erected by the City of Baltimore, Crowninshield Corporation, sponsor, and William Donald Schaefer, mayor.
