Baltimore is chockfull of underground tunnels, vaults and other hideaways. We explored some beneath Lexington Market.
Five elephants, stars of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey’s Circus, had “brunch” at Lexington Market this afternoon after marching up Eutaw Street under a crisp blue sky. They dined on bananas, lettuce and watermelons and were cheered by scores of excited spectators who crowded the market’s parking lot.
The elephants were joined by several circus clowns and an emcee in an effort to promote the “Dragons” circus show which runs through this weekend.
Gobble, Gobble. This week marks the start of almost seven weeks of procrastination thanks to the holiday season. In our latest retro post, we share handsome turkeys from past years, classic Thanksgiving dinners, shopping at Lexington Market and festive images from the Toytown Parade.
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.
