I came across these images yesterday of a building where I used to live in Baltimore for 7 years. I was one of the earliest residents when the one-time factory was renovated into loft apartments. I had long heard that the factory manufactured underwear, never confirmed until yesterday when I found these photos of the erstwhile- BVD Factory.
It is interesting to see that the direction of travel on these main streets in Downtown Baltimore changed several times over the years.
The intersection of West Pratt and Greene Streets is directly across the street from where Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles is located. Also of note is that Babe Ruth’s birthplace is one block away, hidden behind some of the buildings in these photos.
Thanks to the Baltimore Museum of Industry for their diligence in keeping the history of Baltimore both available and alive!
