Obelisk at Howard, Lombard and Liberty Streets, Baltimore's 1880 Sesquicentennial:  Photo of an obelisk made of wood and covered with plaster bearing Egyptian hieroglyphics; located at the intersection of Howard, Lombard and Liberty Streets.  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.
