Anybody know the name / purpose of this structure ? Shes going down now.
This is on the corner of West Baltimore Street and Third Street in New Center just south of the Boulevard, just east of John C. Lodge. It sits along the railroad tracks on its south side. In this Mapquest aerial photo, its the circled building and thats the intersection of Baltimore and Third.
Off to its left is the huge Nabisco cracker factory / warehouse, the NBC Building – both short for ‘National Biscuit Company’. (biscuit being the British vernacular for what Americans commonly call a “cracker”)
Here is an historic photo of the building back in its day complete with water tower.
