Charles Street Rum Run

For several years in the 80's, we ran a 10K race, sponsored by Bacardi, straight down Charles St from St Mary's Seminary on the Northern Parkway to the harbor.Great town, great run (a completely downhill 10K!), great memories...my only sub-40-minute 10K ever.

Stunning

Love this, it's so rich in detail. I've never been to Baltimore, but doing a virtual walkabout on street view seems to indicate that there's a lot of the buildings in this pic still present and correct.

A surprising number of old friends accounted for, lovely town.
