South side of the 200 block of West Biddle Street, Baltimore

@ Enoch Pratt Free Library / State Library Resource Center


Photograph taken looking east at the south side of the 200 block West Biddle Street in Baltimore, Maryland. This picture documents these two-, three-, and four-story brick row houses before demolition to make way for the extension of Howard Street. Equipped with wooden front steps and banisters, these houses offer the visitor a view from the front entrance down a long hallway through the rear door to a garden and have long been favored by artists in the community. On the street, a young African American woman crosses behind a parked panel truck with a sign painted on its back and sides reading "Yale Laundry" (one store is located at number 234 West Biddle). Cars are also parked on the near side of the street. Electric poles are situated on the sidewalk on both sides of the street. Tracks are embedded in the roadway, and electric lines for streetcars are suspended above the street. For a more complete view of this block, see mdaa032 and mdaa167.
