    Glad to hear you had a good time. Very nice pics. I haven't been to the observation deck in a long time. Baltimore's a fun place. You'll have to come for a weekend next time.

    The building with the dome is City Hall.

    Here's some info on the clock tower from wikipedia:

    The Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower was erected in 1911 at the corner of Eutaw and Lombard Streets in Baltimore, Maryland. It was designed by Joseph Evans Sperry and was constructed by Bromo-Seltzer inventor "Captain" Isaac E. Emerson.[2] It was the tallest building in Baltimore from 1911 until 1923. The design of the tower along with the original factory building at its base was inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, which was seen by Emerson during a tour of Europe in 1900.[3] Systems engineering for the building's original design was completed by Henry Adams. The factory has since been replaced with a firehouse.
    From street-level to rooftop, the tower stands 288.7 feet (88.0 metres) high,[4][5][6] and was originally adorned with a 51 foot (15.5 metre) tall Bromo-Seltzer bottle,[7][8] glowing blue and rotating. Due to structural concerns however, the bottle was removed in 1936.
    The tower was virtually abandoned in 2002, but in early 2007 the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts began renovations to transform the building into 33 artists' studios.[8]

    your chubby frog friend has a relative at AK. We saw him on Saturday. Every time I see pictures of the Inner Harbor, I think back to 1977 when I saw it for the first time. A good section of it was just a big, dirt lot. You have some great pics from your adventure.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
