Where Is This in 1930s Baltimore?

Can you identify where this is in Baltimore? It’s from the early 1930s.

The Backus Motor Co. Welcome Wagon. I’m assuming that this represents the Backus Water Motor Co. but I’m not sure. I also believe that this is in Baltimore given the plates on the cars are from Maryland.
