|What attracted me to this building was these cool chimneys. Note
the drip lip at the top.
Details are portland cement, not foam like new
houses and shopping centers.
|Bands, coins and other details were formed and
filled with cement. The workmanship here is superb.
I guess this building was built about 1915.
|A view of the same building. Baltimore has
long been famous for it's plastering, as well as
Annapolis, Maryland, the state capital.
|Another old apartment building, with interesting
cement arches and insets. There are thousands
of nice old stucco buildings here. More about
the history of stucco in Baltimore next issue.
