The Old Harwood Place: 1905

The Old Harwood Place: 1905

Annapolis, Maryland, circa 1905. "Old Harwood mansion (Hammond-Harwood House)." Street-furniture nerds will appreciate the carbon arc lamp with the yardarm-style boom, and the odd-looking hydrant. View full size.

Typical Flemish bond

Holding up nicely after two-hundred-odd years; just needs a little pointing here and there.

Many years ago I picked up a copy of "The Hammond-Harwood House Cookbook." It still has a place on my shelves.

The building on the left

has a sign by the downspout, is it a street name?


An inside look

It even has its own website. Beautiful home, and at first I thought it was hard to believe that in 1905 it was beginning to look tattered. However, it's as old as our nation itself, and that explains the worn stairs easily!


One of the greatest hits of American architectural history. A Palladian masterpiece. So glad it is getting some love on Shorpy (which I absolutely love for highlighting the obscure). Good stuff.

Light Switch

It looks like there's a chain on the light to turn it on and off.

Pedestrian Crosswalks

None here. People certainly lived on the edge 100 years ago.

Still Kickin'

It absolutely warms my heart when a building in a Shorpy photo is still around. And in this case it's in even better condition than it was 106 years ago with maintenance being performed in the google street view image to boot. Thanks for the photo Dave and the update Edvardo.

The porch

What gives with those steps?

Hasn't changed a bit
