Tolchester, view of wharf looking from bridge across the road
Three figures near a wharf on the Chesapeake Bay in Tolchester, Maryland. Two of the figures sit in a cart, while the other stands to the side. A ship can be seen sailing in the distance. Tolchester was the site of the Tolchester Beach Amusement Park, which consisted of a bathing beach, amusement park, racetrack, and hotel, and was in operation from 1877 to 1962. The Kent County park was a popular vacation destination for Baltimoreans as it was only 27 miles across the Chesapeake Bay and the Tolchester Steamboat Company ran daily excursions to Tolchester from Baltimore, Maryland.
