A celebration of the cherished parts of Baltimore that are no longer Organized chronologically starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, this book features much-loved Baltimore institutions that failed to stand the test of time, such as the Sun Iron Building, Electric Amusement Park, and the Rennert Hotel. Alongside the city's iconic and much-missed buildings, it also looks at some traditions that have passed, such as marble doorsteps and painted window screens, and sporting legends that have relocated, such as the Baltimore Colts and Baltimore Bullets. Other sites include Carroll Hall, Baltimore & Ohio Building, News American Building, Montebello, Riverview Amusement Park, Tollgates, Latrobe Block, Bromo Seltzer Factory, Calvert Street Station, Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyard, Fells Point historic homes, Downtown theaters, Centennial Fountain, Camp Holabird, St. Mary's Seminary, and Hutzlers.
