After each Ravens game, photo editors put together a “Rough Cut” over on our visual journalism blog, The Darkroom. It’s a loose edit from The Baltimore Sun’s photographic coverage of the National Football League. Fanatic fans, marching bands, cheerleaders and lots of game action are just part of the spectacle that is the NFL.
This week, photojournalists Kenneth K. Lam, Al Drago and Rachel Woolf photographed the Ravens as they beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-3 during Thursday’s pre-season game at M&T Bank Stadium.
And here’s a picture of a sass-hands Joe Flacco throwing a pass. Beause why not?
THEN: In January of 1962, Baltimore is guarded by emplacements of long-silent cannons on Federal Hill. The weapon dates from the 1814 period. During the Civil War, other cannons reminiscent of these perched along this hill and were trained on the city as Maj. Gen. Benjamin Butler and 3,000 Federal troops kept Baltimore under Union control. (A. Aubrey Bodine, Baltimore Sun file photo, 1962)
NOW: A cannon sits atop Federal Hill much as it did centuries ago. The cannons can be seen around the park and are popular as a tourist attraction. (Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun photo, 2014)
THEN: A sign showing that the Hippodrome Theatre was showing the movie “The Kid” indicates this photo was taken in 1921. The theater seated 3,000 and opened in 1914 as a movie palace that also featured vaudeville acts. (Baltimore Sun photo, 1921)
NOW: This is the restored and revived Hippodrome today, as seen from the Redwood Street garage. (Barbara Haddock Taylor, Baltimore Sun photo, 2014)
