Baltimore, Canning Capital: Oysters, Vegetables, and the Cans They Went Into

For one hundred years, Baltimore was a major food canning industry, later becoming the center of canning in the United States. More than one hundred packing houses shared space with can making factories and the homes of thousands of workers. This is the story of the laborers who made canning happen and how they, and often their children, lived and worked.

This program will be presented by Jack Burkert of the Baltimore Museum of Industry, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Canton Library.

This event will be held across from the library at the Dnipro Ukrainian Club at 3101 O'Donnell Street, Baltimore, MD 21224.
