R.M. Hays and Bros. photographs (- Black Rock Hotel)


Black Rock, Washington County Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Black Rock is south of Pen Mar on the ridge between Frederick and Washington Counties. Like Pen Mar the area had locations where people could escape from the heat and humidity of the cities and enjoy the country air.

This scene appears to be an auto rally of some sort. All of the drivers are wearing cloth caps. The hotel porch is full of interested onlookers. The automobiles appear to be Popes, manufactured in Hagerstown.
