Lost Baltimore is the latest in the series from Anova Books that traces the cherished places in a city that time, progress and fashion have swept aside before the National Register of Historic Places could save them from the wrecker's ball.Organised chronologically starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, the book features much-loved Philadelphia insitutions that failed to stand the test of time, such as the Sun Iron Building, Electric Amusement Park and the Rennert Hotel.Grand buildings erected in the Victorian era that were too costly to be refurbished, or movie theaters that the age of television made redundant are featured. Alongside the city's iconic and much-missed buildings, Lost Baltimore also looks at some traditions that have passed (marble doorsteps, painted window screens) and sporting legends that have relocated (Baltimore Colts, Baltimore Bullets).Lost Baltimore is a nostalgic journey back in time to visit some of the lost treasures that the city let slip through its grasp.
