Eutaw Street and Druid Hill Avenue, Baltimore's 1880 Sesquicentennial:  Photo of Baltimoreans posing with a horse-drawn fire engine under a sesquicentennial celebration archway at the corner of Eutaw Street and Druid Hill Avenue. One of several prints taken in 1880, showing miscellaneous views of downtown Baltimore on the 150th anniversary of the original founding of Baltimore.  (Note that the "founding" of Baltimore in 1730 is recognized separately from the incorporation of Baltimore as a city, which took place in 1797, and for which a 200th anniversary was celebrated in 1997.)

Photographic print; unknown photographer; Tormey Family collection.
