Baltimore residents of all backgrounds remember the bustling shops of Howard and Lexington Street but a handful of Jewish-owned businesses – Hutzler’s, Hecht’s, and Read’s Drug Store just to name a few – stand out in stories and memories from the history of Downtown’s west side.
Bring your camera and join Baltimore Heritage and Baltimore Sun for a free photowalk and tour exploring the history of Jewish entrepreneurs and workers in downtown Baltimore.
This tour is presented in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Maryland for the Jewish Landmarks Photo Competition.
Saturday, October 27, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Meet at the east entrance to Lexington Market – Eutaw and Lexington Streets.
RSVP on Facebook.
We’ll feature the best photos from the photowalk on The Darkroom. To submit photos, you can upload them on our site or through Twitter and Instagram with hashtag #heritagepw and @baltimoresun.
