    In the link below, I say Ellwood Avenue, part of which borders the east side of Patterson Park, is labeled Canton Street. It’s a 1907 map. East Avenue, the next block east of Canton/Ellwood, is shown. Collections.digitalmaryland.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/mcmc/id/42/rec/18 . Google DigitalMaryland, then look for Mapping Maryland’s Counties, then look for the 1907 map of Baltimore

      I agree with you, definitely Ellwood Ave.

    It’s the odd side of the unit block of S. Ellwood!

    #3-17 S. Ellwood which in Md. State Archives used to be called Canton St. This is the East side of the street where this photo is taken as the doorways are to the right hand side of the window. the “even side” or west side of S. Ellwood Street has the door and window location reversed.
