Bromo Seltzer Tower, Baltimore, MD

The Schmap online guide to Baltimore requested use of this photo, I learned it was included and am so grateful for the exposure.

You can see the guide by clicking on the widget in the right margin. There are several shots including this tower, they are the 6th group. I believe they call it the Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower. If you find my photo and click it, it will bring you to the image on Flickr. (This image is for sale in my Etsy shop.)

If you need to find your way around Baltimore, MD, maybe this Schmap map will help you out!

Peace, Judi

That looks an awful lot like the Custom House Tower in Boston. Do you know the height of the Bromo Seltzer Tower?

In response to Suldog's comments and question:

As to the design:
"The design of the tower along with the original factory building at its base was inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy"

As to the height:
"From street-level to rooftop, the tower stands 288.7 feet (88.0 metres) high, and was originally adorned with a 51 foot (15.5 metre) tall Bromo-Seltzer bottle, glowing blue and rotating. Due to structural concerns however, the bottle was removed in 1936."

All of the above from Wikipedia.

Thanks to all!
