"Hee Haw Carryout," 1001 West Baltimore Street, 2009 & 2013.
Here are two shots of one of my favorite buildings in Baltimore. The name is perfect. The first shot I did in 2009 was with a 150mm lens and Fujichrome Provia 100 film. It was a light overcast day and a little too much glare in the background. I re-shot it a couple weeks ago with Fujichrome Velvia 50 I’ve been using and with a 90mm lens. You can see the B&O Roundhouse in the background.
One of those perfect moments. Two Baltimore POLICE having a nice dinner at Zella’s with my photos in the background. Classic. #baltimore #police #zellaspizzeria #bmoreblockbyblock #classic #hollinsmarket #westbaltimore #sowebo #soweboarts
These are just two of six buildings on this block that were formerly home to the Hutzler’s Brothers Co. department store. All six buildings are connected, it appears, and extend over to Saratoga Street. The building on Saratoga Street is now the office for the Department of Human Resources for Baltimore City. I’m not sure, but they may occupy the whole complex. The rest of the Hutzler buildings will require me gaining roof access to the old Stewart’s department store across the street on Howard as well as the roof of a parking garage on Saratoga.
100 Block, North Howard Street, west side, 2010 & 2012.
I started this block in the fall of 2010 and finished it in 2012, except for a larger building at the corner of Howard & Lexington. There is no longer a Light Rail stop here, and all of the benches, awnings, and ticket machines have been torn out and replaced by landscaping and tree. The KFC is no longer in that old bank building either. I may photograph it again to document the changes.
