The images in this album are scanned from glass negatives attributed to C. R. R. Beck. There is a full version of each image showing the entire glass plate. Following many of the images are enlarged sections of the original as well as a few images showing notes in Charlies own handwriting describing the images. Charlie Beck operated a photo and postcard shop on East Main Street. Beck's images amount to the best collection of early images we have of Thurmont. Many of the Beck images appear as postcards published by Beck, Rogers or Cassell and can be found scattered through out this collection.  C. R R. Beck seems to be a mystery since no one can identify where he came from or where he went after leaving Thurmont. Please note that the order in which these images are named and displayed is not an indication of the order in which they were taken. My sincere thanks to the Thurmont Historical Society for allowing me the opportunity to scan the original glass plates and to display them here.
