Great design takes time to evolve. This Tidewater-style library by Innerspace's Gerry Ebert, Maryland chapter president of the American Society of Interior Designers, and partner Daniel Proctor represents an examination of the use of time in design. xTC The design approach might be called a study in the evolution of a space.The room was built in 1927 as an addition to the main structure, which is nearly 200 years older. At some point an owner had paneling moved from the old section into the new library.

It looks more like the historic manor houses of southern Maryland than a classroom building for scientists of the 21st century.But that was considered the best way to create a $16 million science center for St. Mary's College of Maryland, the state institution whose picturesque campus borders the site of Maryland's first colonial settlement and state capital.Characterized by massive paired chimneys that double as fume exhaust vents for the high-tech laboratories inside, the science center takes its character from the indigenous architecture of the region.

A quarter-century ago, the name Tidewater Insurance was synonymous with political influence in Maryland. The company, owned by the friends of then-Gov. Marvin Mandel, wrote millions of dollars worth of insurance contracts on state projects. One subsidiary alone had 28 state contracts during Mandel's tenure. But Tidewater's fate changed when three of its owners were convicted along with Mandel on mail fraud and racketeering charges. Though the convictions were overturned, Tidewater's political lifeline appeared to be severed and, with new owners, it dropped from view - or so it seemed.

OXFORD - A newspaper advertising man came up with the idea for the curious little magazine aimed at the tourists, day-trippers, retirees and second-home buyers who began streaming across the brand new Bay Bridge in 1952. The formula was pretty simple: It should be free. It should be black and white to keep costs down. It should say something about the history of Talbot County, the Eastern Shore's Colonial capital. It should showcase the area's elegant waterfront real estate. It should avoid controversy.

EASTON -- From the vantage point of Larry Albright's gun shop, the venerable Tidewater Inn looms over the bustling corner of Harrison and Dover streets like a grand dame of the Eastern Shore. But lately rumors are flying about the future of the red-brick, Federal-style hotel that for half a century has successfully mixed upscale elegance with such hunter-friendly traditions as a 4:30 a.m. breakfast and a welcome to those who want to keep their retrievers in their rooms. A bank is threatening to foreclose on the inn's latest owner, and downtown merchants are worried.

Their course is repetitious but rarely dull. Uniform, but hardly boring. That is a ferry boat's grace. Before bridges and tunnels became practical or popular, homely ferry boats shuttled travelers and commerce from this shore to that and back again.Flat and utilitarian, ferries function as floating extensions of the roadway. They are the oldest means of dry-crossing the waterways that punctuate the mid-Atlantic landscape. But more than historic relics, the eight working Tidewater ferries flourish today as cherished and useful elements of their communities.
