Collection Overview: In 2006, the Enoch Pratt Free Library embarked on the Maryland Library's Most Wanted project. The goal of the project was to seek the public's knowledge and assistance in identifying a number of photographs in its collections. A selection of unidentified photos were digitized and made available online. All of them were taken in the state of Maryland in the 20th century, but in many cases that's all that was known. Members of the public responded by providing the locations, people, and other information pertaining to the photographs; however, some remain unidentified.

Each person who correctly identifies a photograph gets their name put next to the picture.
