Each month in our newsletter, we include a photo of a building somewhere in Baltimore and ask our readers to quickly identify it. The first person to get it right gets recognized in the next newsletter and the satisfaction of winning. The competition is stiff and the replies are swift. Out of the dozens of responses we get each month, a few dedicated readers have set themselves apart with their deep knowledge of Baltimore’s buildings and lightning fast response rate.
For the first time the BAF presented the Jim Dilts Publication Award to a local author and historian who is working toward publishing a new work, which expands upon the existing canon of knowledge of Baltimore’s built environment.
