A celebration of the cherished parts of Baltimore that are no longer
Organized chronologically starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, this book features much-loved Baltimore institutions that failed to stand the test of time, such as the Sun Iron Building, Electric Amusement Park, and the Rennert Hotel. Alongside the city's iconic and much-missed buildings, it also looks at some traditions that have passed, such as marble doorsteps and painted window screens, and sporting legends that have relocated, such as the Baltimore Colts and Baltimore Bullets. Other sites include Carroll Hall, Baltimore & Ohio Building, News American Building, Montebello, Riverview Amusement Park, Tollgates, Latrobe Block, Bromo Seltzer Factory, Calvert Street Station, Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyard, Fells Point historic homes, Downtown theaters, Centennial Fountain, Camp Holabird, St. Mary's Seminary, and Hutzlers.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in newspaper journalism from the University of Georgia in 1993, Alexander has worked at three daily newspapers, including, most recently, the Baltimore Sun as special sections manager. Since launching Pen and Ink, he has written for a variety of local and national newspapers and magazines. Alexander is also executive editor at Stone House Publications, overseeing two magazines—Mason-Dixon Arrive, a monthly lifestyle magazine, and I95 Business, a business magazine covering the northeast Maryland corridor. He is the co-author of three books: Images of America: Woodley Park, Images of America: Capitol Hill and A Brief History of Charles Village. Paul Kelsey Williams has an educational background in historic preservation and architecture from both Roger Williams and Cornell Universities. Since 1995, he has been the proprietor of Kelsey & Associates, “The House History People,” focusing on individual house and building research in Washington, D.C. and beyond. He is the author of 12 books on Washington, D.C. neighborhoods, institutions, and themes, the Charles Village neighborhood in Baltimore, and books on his childhood residences of Skaneateles and Owasco Lakes in upstate New York. Williams maintains a daily blog on Washington, D.C. history at The House History Man, and is completing a book on how to research your own house history. He is also the author of Lost Washington, D.C.
