January 24, 1884 Letter from the office of J.E. Clark & Co., Wholesale Liquor Dealers, No. 48 S. Howard St. Baltimore to Hon (Honorable) (Mayor) F.E. Latrobe: Dr. (Dear) Sir, We take pleasure in recommending hon (honorable) Jas. McFarland for the position of Inspector of Weights and Measures! From our long acquaintance with him, we can endorse him as a man of strict honor & integrity and should you appoint him, we feel satisfied he will give general satisfaction to the trade.

May 15, 1923 Letter from Stehley Plumbing to the Mayor and the sewerage engineer Ruark asking for a sanitary sewer in the alley, houses along Hamilton Ave. and ? (Where Remmell Ave. is now)(Not sure if initials in upper right are Mayor Broening’s? Note says to notify plumber when plans are completed).

I looked on a few maps and still cannot find the name of the intersection that 3815 Hamilton Ave. was at back then. Someone once asked me when did Northeast Baltimore get a sewer system? It was about this time.

A photo I posted on Facebook a couple years ago, showing Sewerage Maintenance trucks and workers back in 1928, parked in front of the Baltimore Stadium.

Democrats doing the Hip-Hop back in 1900! I looked up the 21st District to see where the China Hall was located. Found China Alley but no Hall.
