Annapolis Maryland Blog Photograph • C1880 Italianate Facade Obscures its C1770 Georgian Architecture • Saturday July 1st 2017

Even So its Late 19th Century Details are Quite Exquisite

Publisher’s Note: This photo journal entry features the sixteenth period building or house to be included in the 18th Century Architecture of Annapolis Series. In the future as weather conditions, natural lighting and an absence of location clutter permits additional buildings and houses from the 1700s will be posted as well. The goal in assembling this annotated collection of my photographs and curated content related to these 18th century structures is to present each of the 90 or so 1700’s historical buildings found in the City of Annapolis today. Each of the previously posted entries in this collection are available here.

C1880 Italianate Facade Obscures its C1770 Georgian Architecture in Annapolis Maryland July 1st 2017

Walking along Main Street in Annapolis earlier I happen to pass by this fine example of an Italianate style commercial facade yet could only wonder what it looked like in the 1770s when it was built as a single family Georgian style house.

Yes for those so inclined to take note of period architecture here in the City by all appearances it represents a very distinctive looking late 19th century commercial building. However over 130 years ago it was altered to its present day appearance, when a series of merchants took ownership and went on to convert its ground floor to a variety of storefronts, so as to ply their respective business trades to serve downtown residents.

Yes it seems that once again yet another Annapolis storefront facade can be a bit deceiving architecturally speaking.

Have a good afternoon,

Glenn
