These are photos I shot last week of the original plat survey drawings by Ben Dyer Associates, Inc. (many signed by Mr. Dyer himself) of Steward Manor Apartments.

These drawings confirm that the community was built in three separate phases, labeled “Parcels A, B, & C”, respectively, and that the order of construction we’ve theorized is correct. I’ll be posting cleaner, detailed scans of each section; but for now, enjoy browsing through the originals—and see how Steward Manor comes into shape! Click the link above to see the entire set on Flickr.

Profound thanks to Mr. Stephen Mauersberg, Vice-President of Ben Dyer Associates, Inc. for sharing these fantastic pieces with me for the Steward Manor Days project.

About Richard Friend

I'm a graphic designer and creator of "Lost Laurel"—a collection of photos and print ephemera chronicling the countless stores, restaurants, and other long-lost merchants of Laurel, Maryland. I'm interesting in hearing from any former/current residents, especially those with vintage photos, literature, and recollections of the community. richardfrienddesign.com lostlaurel.com facebook.com/lostlaurel
