101 Willard Street. Baltimore.

I’m always amazed at how much of Baltimore is frozen — not in ice, but in time. Today I visited 101 Willard Street, a complex of factory buildings that once housed the Eigenbrot Brewery. It opened in 1873, and closed with Prohibition in 1920. According to the website “Baltimore Slumlord Watch,” the address is no longer listed in Baltimore City records, and the owner of the property is a mystery. Yet there it sits, at the corner of Lombard and Willard, looking at once both grand, and tragic.

OP Discoveries

Here’s a fun one:

In Act 2, Scene 8, Salarino tells Salanio about a Venetian ship that wrecked in the English Channel. Salanio’s responds with:

You were best to tell Antonio what you hear—

Yet do not suddenly, for it may grieve him.”

It certainly will grieve him, because if it turns out to be one of his ships, he’ll forfeit his debt to Shylock. In OP, though, grieve is pronounced like grave, so we get a new pun there. You could say, colloquially, that the grief would kill him; but also, forfeiting to Shylock means paying with a pound of flesh, which more likely than not will kill him very literally.
