Shortly after the Great Fire of Baltimore started the morning of Feb. 7, 1904, J.E. Henry spent about a half-hour photographing the collapse of the Hurst building, where the blaze started.
Meanwhile, A.C. Abadie was sent to film the fire using a motion picture camera that Thomas Edison had just patented.
