A pioneering automobile dealer and one of the most prolific photographers in Montgomery County, Maryland at the turn of the 20th century. The photographs in this newly launched section reveal how residents lived, worked, played, and went to school in Montgomery County at the turn of the 20th Century. Categories include House & Home, Social Visits, Fun & Games, Family Pets, Music, and School Days.

The majority of the photos in the “Fun and Games” section are of Lewis Reed’s daughter, Mary Jane.
