The Myer Kaplon Photograph Collection consists of over 2200 photographs taken by Myer Kaplon between 1940 and his death in 1978. These photographs include people, animals, businesses, buildings, and town events, such as the Potomac River Festival, which later became Railroad Days, and the longstanding Veterans Day parade, which still exists today. Many of the photographs were taken inside the Kaplon Department Store, which was a family-owned business, run by Mr. Kaplon until the store closed in 1967. Along with being an avid, amateur photographer for the Brunswick community, Myer Kaplon also authored several articles for the Brunswick Blade Times, now the Brunswick Citizen, under the pen name EMKAY. Upon his death in 1978, Mr. Kaplon's family donated all of his community photographs to the Brunswick Public Library, as Mr. Kaplon was very active in establishing a public library in Brunswick.
