Tales from the Baltimore Ravens Sideline

A Collection of the Greatest Ravens Stories Ever Told


Posted: 12/11/2013

Local author Elmer J. Hall visits Greetings & Readings for a book signing on Wednesday, December 11 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

A Mill on the Point: One Hundred and Twenty-Five Years of Steelmaking at Sparrows Point, MarylandNew from local author Elmer J. Hall, A Mill on the Point: One Hundred and Twenty-Five Years of Steelmaking is not intended to be a manual on how to make steel, although some aspects of the steelmaking process are included. Nor does it cover every facet of the physical plant at Sparrows Point.

Instead, the purpose of this publication is twofold. One, preserve the memory of what was, at one time, the largest tidewater steel mill in the world. Two, pay tribute to the tens of thousands of men and women who plied their trade in the mill over a period of 125 years.

Author Elmer J. Hall's other local interest titles include The Patapsco and Back Rivers Railroad: Chronicles of the Push, Bump and Ram; Shipbuilding at Sparrows Point Yard; and Diary of A Mill Town: Recollections of the Bungalows and Sparrows Point, Maryland.

The purpose of Diary of A Mill Town is to preserve the memory of a place that is gone but not forgotten - a small community that once flourished in the shadow of a giant steel mill and was subsequently consumed by its expansion.

The Patapsco and Back Rivers Railroad is an 8-1/2" x 11", 240-page, softcover book with 24 pages in colors, more than 300 photos and maps.

Shipbuilding at Sparrows Point Yard is another large, paperback book. This one preserves the memory of the Sparrows Point Shipyard and the proud tradition of shipbuilding that followed there during its 100+ years of operation.

Can't make it to the signing? Order A Mill on the Point: One Hundred and Twenty-Five Years of Steelmaking at Sparrows Point, Maryland or other titles from Elmer J. Hall's collection before the author's appearance and request personalized, autographed editions at no extra charge.
