Publisher: Cornell Maritime Press, Inc.
From eighteenth-century mansions to urban high-rise buildings, A Guide to Baltimore Architecture chronicles two hundred years of architectural history through an exploration of the city's most beautiful and significant structures. Grouped by neighborhood in walking and driving tours, each building is pictured and described with a commentary on its history and style. This is a reference that will be informative to both the layman and the scholar; it will delight anyone who hopes to discover the architectural riches of the historic city that has become modern Baltimore.
Thoroughly rewritten, with updated information on more than two hundred buildings, including those built during the past fifteen years, the guide incorporates new photographs, maps, and tours. This third edition also features a fresh examination of twentieth-century design in Baltimore by architectural historian Phoebe B. Stanton. The biographies of Baltimore architects have been expanded, making use of the substantial recent research conducted by architects, architectural historians, and other professionals.
