I went up to Baltimore to take some pictures for Iris today. I can’t share those with you but I took this one of the Abell Building near the medical school. The Romanesque revival building was originally built in the 1870’s by Arunah Abell, the founder of the Baltimore Sun newspaper. It has recently been renovated and is an apartment building.

Located between Wellington and Front Streets at Church Street in Toronto, the Gooderham Building, completed in 1892, is a good example of a flatiron building, similar to its more famous cousin, the Fuller Building in New York City. I had to edit this picture a bit to take out a half dozen pesky girls standing in the foreground, but I don’t think that’s too noticeable unless you look closely. I couldn’t just wait for them to move because I was sitting in the van at a traffic light and by the time they moved, I’d have been gone. I love buildings from this period. Classic.
