Bodine’s Baltimore

When I was searching the archives, I found a file marked Bodine pictures. I pulled it out and found a few images that the great Baltimore photographer, A. Aubrey Bodine, had taken of our building in February of 1961. There were several interior images, which in hindsight, don’t do our decorating skills any favour, and one exterior shot. Bodine picture

It looks like Cathedral Street was one-way, heading south, at the time this picture was made. I am completely fascinated by the car on the left side of the image. Any ideas of what it is?

And why is that window open on a snowy February day?


  1. I think it's a mid-50s Oldsmobile.

  2. Do a web search for "1954 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible". Think that's it.

  3. Is that that the big car? I was trying to figure out the little car!
