Georgetown Water Street 1845. Passengers Embarking in the Brig “Edward”



The once busy port of Georgetown, on the western border of the Federal Capital, grew and thrived on the export of tobacco from Maryland’s plantations. It was at the end of navigable water on the Potomac and, with canals eventually reaching inland to Cumberland, the port became a center of activity of ocean-going and coastal shipping.
