About This Item

Baltimore: N.p., 1934. Vintage black and white photograph of the 1934 graduating class of George Washington Carver Vocational-Technical High School in Baltimore, MD. With a credit for photographer Paul Henderson at the bottom center of the photograph.

The school was the first African American vocational-technical public high school in the state of Maryland, established in 1925.

Born in Springfield, Tennessee, photographer Paul Henderson moved to Maryland in 1929, where he became the Baltimore Afro-American newspaper's first photojournalist, capturing racial segregation and early civil rights protests, as well as documenting everyday African American life in the city. He also became known for his portraits of important Black political figures in Baltimore, including later Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, NAACP Baltimore Branch president Lillie Mae Carroll Jackson, Mayor Theodore McKeldin, and journalist Carl Murphy. Of particular note are Henderson's photographs of businesses and people along Pennsylvania Avenue, a hub for African American culture and life in Baltimore in the 20th century.

Approximately 10 x 8 inches, trimmed irregularly. Very Good plus overall.
