    An extremely well-known location, this is the south end of the “Guilford Avenue El”, the section of streetcar track elevated above the southernmost end of the old Northern Central (later Pennsylvania RR) approach to Calvert Station and the tracks switching various industries there, including the printing plant of the Baltimore Sun. The House of Welsh seen to the right closed in 1998, but had a second location in Fenwick Island, Del. which closed in 2014.
    The Google Street View is obsolete as well–the House of Welsh, three 1830s rowhouses cobbled together that had survived the Great Baltimore Fiere of 1904– https://historicsprawl.wordpress.com/2011/12/07/house-of-welsh-demolished-on-december-3/
