Baltimore Albums: A Visible Face of Social Revolution - Secrets, secrets… these “Fascinating Ladies” reveal – as no other quilt genre – specific lives and times. Through glorious photos, view the momentous age that made America what she has become. Across today’s industrialized world from Tokyo to Capetown to Calgary, great numbers have enjoyed Baltimore’s Revivalist journey for 30 years now. Was it a specific artist’s influence that lifted so many antebellum Album quilts made in one city at one time – so high? Is old Baltimore’s answer a secret hidden in her quilts? Or, like Conan Doyle’s “Dog that didn’t bark” is it right before our eyes?
