              Skyline 1914  
...This view appears to be towards the northeast , from perhaps the Bromo Tower (?) . You can clearly see the Tower Building in the background. Much of what is seen in this picture has been torn down over the years. Picture is circa 1914.

...Looking west along Baltimore Street towards the southwest, from perhaps the Tower Building. You can see the Sun Building in the center of the photo and in the background, the Bromo Building, with the giant bottle of Bromo of top of it.

I believe this view is east on Fayette Street from Charles Street. The building in the center appears to be the old Post Office building.
The building on the left is the Baltimore Circuit Court Building.
