Cecil County New Deal History Found on WPA Today

WPA Today, a website published by Brent McKee, contains an interesting virtual exhibit of WPA projects around Maryland.  He has drawn on Great Depression era photographs and art work in the collection at the University of Maryland College Park Archives and added his own current images to it as he travels around the State.  The Maryland exhibits includes a number of Cecil County projects that caught our attention, including the African-American Schoolhouse in Port Deposit, the Pleasant Hill Fire Tower, street work in Elkton, the Elkton reservoir, water and sewer work in Chesapeake City and more.  We think readers of a Window on Cecil Count’s Past will find this site of interest.  Thanks Brent for sharing  Maryland New Deal history on the Web.
