A popular tourist stop for anyone visiting the historic seaside city of Baltimore, the inner harbor area was once an industrial shipping seaport with old warehouses and cranes dotting the landscape.
Nothing says yesteryear like an old cobblestone street. Many cities have these in older sections of town and although they don't provide the smoothest ride while driving, they have a wonderful aesthetic character. "Cobs", from the old English word, first appeared in the 15th century and generally meant a stone rounded by the flow of water.
This is Bond Street in the Fells Point section of Baltimore. A couple of hundred feet from this point lies the open waters of the inner harbor which is part of the Patapsco River. To the left is the famed Bond Street Wharf.
Once a heavy industrial seaport, you can still see the railroad tracks from many years ago where goods were shipped. The area is now a mix of commercial office space, condominiums, pubs and dining establishments.
Thanks for stopping by!
