In 2002, a set of nitrate negatives was discovered at Evergreen House. The negatives were part of the Fowler Collection--an extensive collection of architectural drawings and documents created by noted Baltimore architect Laurence Hall Fowler. Through a grant from the Middendorf Foundation, the Rare Books and Manuscripts Department of the Sheridan Libraries made a set of archival quality prints and a set of reference prints.

The photographs were taken by Fowler during the two world wars, and document the changing face of Baltimore's vernacular architecture during that period. Fowler's office was in downtown Baltimore, and most of the images are from that area.
