The 1858 estate of James Carey, known as "The Mount." Carey was a shipper and a member of the first Baltimore City Council. The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School is named after him.

The grounds of the estate were developed into what is now called the Fairmount neighborhood in the early twentieth century.

The manor building itself is in the process of restoration to be the administrative headquarters of Progressive Horizons, a social service agency. Recently installed windows and a new retaining wall are visible in this photo, while just outside the frame was a roll off container with construction debris.

Thanks to Cham Green, who documented this house back in early June during one of her urban hikes.

Good shot. That's the sort of lighting I like too for buildings - diffuse sunshine just enough to add form without making the shadows too harsh. Don't see that enough in Spain, where the light tends to be as hard as hell out of a big blue sky. Add buildings which are mostly whitewashed... Doh!
