    The first motel you come across when traveling out of Baltimore City, after passing over Rossville Blvd would have been  the Hawkins Motor Court, which also housed a Amoco Gas Station. The gas station and motel were on the southeast corner of the intersection of Pulaski Highway at Middle River Road. There is currently a modern gas station on that corner and nothing appears to have survived of the old motel / motor court, which was torn down by the 1970's.

The Curb Carry Out

5 miles North of Baltimore City Line

    Located on Rt 40. It was located around the Middle River Road intersection. My best guess at this time is just North ( East ) of the Hawkins Motor Court, on the other side of Middle River Road, but at this point, that's just a guess. I have also found ads that list it at Rt 40 and Rt 7, which would much closer to the City .

  U..S. 40 Pulaski Highway, northeast of Middle River Road. I'm not too sure on the history of this place,but it still appears to be open and operating.  Used to go by the name of the Colonial Motor Court and Colonial Court Cabins.

Baltimore County, Maryland (White Marsh )

     Well, I've gotten several emails on this place,and it appears it was never quite a diner. Seems it was a strip club ( "Topless bar" )  called Charlotte's in the 1970's and 1980's. Apparently, there were trailers in the back of this place, back in the day, for those " activities " that continued on from inside the club. I still don't know if they served food or not .........As of 2015, the building is gone and the lot is overgrown.

Thanks to Brian, Lisa, and everyone else for the help on this one !

Blue Star Motel
White Marsh , Maryland
  8Miles North of Baltimore Line

In June 0f 2008 , the Blue Star Motel was torn down to make way for some type of new building. It only took two days to knock down the old Motel, which stood since the 1950's. In the early 1960's, it went by the name of the Burgundy Motel, as seen, in the last postcard.

    The sign you see here was torn down in the 1990's. All that remained was the poles that once held the sign up. The screens were still up, but covered by trees, as the entire area was overgrown. Fast forward to 2008 and the entire site has been graded and undergoing construction work. No trace of the Drive In exists today !

Belgian Village
  "11 Miles North of Baltimore - U.S. Route 40 "
At the Northeast Corner of Rt 40 and Jones Rd.
    "No longer need one cross the Atlantic to visit a Flemish village and enjoy its quaintness and charm. The Belgian Village is a replica of a little Belgian town. Each little house contains one or more rooms with a private bath. Meals are served in the Town Hall. Open all year. Steam heated. Belgian Village, Bradshaw Md. "

..Belgian Village Bradshaw Maryland
 From what I can gather, the Belgian Village was later converted into a 76 Truck Stop gas , which was later torn down in the mid 1980's, if you look carefully at the postcard , lower right, you can see part of the old Belgian Village still standing behind the gas pumps. . This would have been right across from the TV Court Motel Complex, which was torn down a few years ago. There is absolutely no trace of the complex today, which is currently a field. 
Thanks again Albert !

     This motel complex is no longer standing. They are now large piles of dirt around the complex, and the buildings survived up until 2009 , before being torn down . Back in 2007 , I came across the vacant complex, seen in the photos below. At first I thought it was Belgian Village, but I've been told that Belgian Village was off of the northbound lanes of Pulaski Highway, and a little further up, towards Joppatowne.
