Classic Bad Photography Sunday

One of the things I always liked about Baltimore was the mix of the old and the new.  Case in point, this building, the Power Plant.

This is a photo from the late 80's, and I remember that I took it early on a summer morning.  The harbor is off to the east, to the right of this photo.  That's why the building is back lit.

The power plant used to be just that.  It was later turned into an entertainment venue.  If memory serves, they struggled to keep tenants.  Many came and went, including an ESPN Zone restaurant.

A web search the other day shows the building appears to be filled and viable.

I wish we were like that around here-- renovate and reuse rather than destroy.
