It's #FlashBAC Friday!

Today's photo is from March 1998. It’s amazing to see some faces in this photo that were present in the Old Timers photo from 1975 that we posted back on November 5th.

Do you know any of these #BAC1MVD members? Please reach out to help us identify them.

Happy Friday!

For this week’s #FlashBAC we have a photo from March 6, 1993. We would agree that “The Craft is Back,” but it never left!

If you know any of the #BAC1MVD members in this image, please reach out to help us identify them.

For this week’s #BACworks, we are revisiting the work done by #BAC1MVD members with Lorton Stone, LLC. who are working on a project at Baltimore City Hall.

Keep up the good work!
