I googled Baltimore Synagogue History and found this website:
Sharon Israel Synagogue is well down on the page. Good photos, but no history.

There is reference at the bottom of the website:
"Synagogues, temples and congregations of Maryland: 1830-1990, Paperback" 1993, by
Earl Price. Another possibility might be Acadia Publishing "Images of America, The
Jewish Community of Baltimore" 2008, by Lauren R. Silberman

Both available >from on-line booksellers.
