Summer 2013–July 19–Baltimore, MD

From Andrews Famcamp just east of Washington D.C. we traveled a little over 40 miles to Baltimore, MD.

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower (”The Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower, built in 1911, was modeled after Florence's Palazzo Vecchio. The tower was built next to the Bromo-Seltzer factory. Now the tower is an art studio and showcase, with an original elevator that can take you from floor to floor and to the top where you can see and learn about the four clocks that are at the top of the tower.”
We explored the Inner Harbor area including the Maryland Port Vessel Operation. Baltimore is located on the Patapsco River an arm of Chesapeake Bay. The Port of Baltimore is a large Mid-Atlantic seaport founded in 1706.

Brewer’s Hill was originally the location of The National Brewing Company. The distinctive logo is of the one-eyed mustached round faced character named “Mr Boh”. The brewery closed in 1978. The neighborhood is now one of retail, office, restaurants and residential. It is located just a block from the waterfront.

This will be the last post on our 2013 trip for a while. I've lost some photos due to a corrupt SD Card.
