Photographer's Note

A shot taken from our bedroom window at Casey’s Hotel, Baltimore.

Baltimore has a history that can be traced back to prehistoric times. The name itself is often thought to derive from the Irish baile an tν mhσir meaning ‘town of the great house’. A more intriguing theory, however, links it to ancient Celtic religion and the pagan god Baal. Whatever the truth, successive generations of men and women have left their mark here for those who know where to look. Pirates, smugglers and sea battles all had a share in the story. Prehistoric remains, ruined castles and shipwrecks all have a tale to tell. In recent, more peaceful times Baltimore became known as a centre of fishing and boat building, earning a reputation far beyond these shores. Another aspect of this maritime heritage is a tradition of lifesaving; the lifeboat station, home to two lifeboats, is among the oldest in the country.
