Vintage Parkville-Overlea: The Huckster

This photograph, which shows a man who had a huckster's route throughout the east side of Baltimore County, came from the library's legacy collection.

This week we're taking a break from the usual guessing game to highlight a piece of ephemera from Parkville's history.

The man shown in this photo, taken in the 30's, is named Esau M. Gwynn—he owned a chicken farm on Forge Road in Perry Hall, between Gunpowder State Park and what is now I-95.

Gwynn, shown here with Billy White, had a huckster's route that took him through Parkville, Overlea, Perry Hall and Hamilton.

This photo, downloaded from the Baltimore County Public Library's Legacy Web photo collection, was originally published by Rev. Moses L. Gwynn Jr. in 1930.
