MARION WARREN PHOTOGRAPHS | STAN & JOE'S LOT, WEST ST.
Marion Warren’s six photographs capture this historic Annapolis neighborhood in a sleepier time: a lone midshipman slowly trudging through the snow by St. Anne’s Church; the official vehicle in front of Farmer’s National Bank; men chatting by the Courthouse fence; garden club members selling flowers; a family waiting for a parade; and neighborhood markets. People are recorded living, working, going about their everyday activities, and enjoying life’s simple pleasures–as generations of Annapolitans have done on these streets for years.
