Sykesville from the air photographed in 1936

Most of the buildings you see on the Howard County side of the river were owned by the B. F. Shriver Canning Factory. There are much better reproductions of this photo available at the museum.

Here’s a closer in view.

Here’s a third view and no the bright flash in the foreground is not a nuclear explosion.
