"This record of shortsighted destruction may help save the city's remaining wood, stone, and brick treasures."-- Baltimore Magazine They fell victim to fire and time, road builders and city planners, the schemes of short-sighted developers, and their owners' neglect. From the red-brick shops and taverns of colonial times to the monumental banks and theaters of the early twentieth century, the lost buildings of old Baltimore represent an irreplaceable part of the city's heritage. Now, in this revised and beautifully redesigned edition of Carleton Jones's popular retrospective, the vanished structures of Baltimore's past are made accessible to a new generation of readers. Each of the more than one hundred entries includes a photograph, the building's exact location, the years it was built and razed, and a paragraph describing its architectural and historical significance. Also included are lively and informative essays giving an overview of Baltimore's colonial, Federal, antebellum, Victorian, and "golden city" periods of architecture. Churches and saloons, temples and courthouses, public buildings, townhouses, office buildings, and country mansions--the structures of Lost Baltimore have lost none of their power to stir the imagination. " Lost Baltimore is valuable for its collection and presentation of buildings we can know now only through pictures and text. The book is likely to hold its interest over the long term."-- Maryland Historical Magazine
