Grid Like Ambiance on a Narrow Side Street

Circa 1920 Rock Faced Rear Garage and Colorful Sixteen Panel Door in Annapolis Maryland August 14th 2017

Over the course of my years photographing the City of Annapolis I have taken more than a couple of photographs depicting the front of the c1860 Charles Russell Grocery Store located two blocks east of the Maryland State House. The house was painted somewhat recently using the same combination of golden wheat exterior walls with olive drab and red orange hued trim it had previously.

Opting for a different perspective of the house I made my way around the back, via a narrow public side street of course, where I took note that the rear garage had been recently painted as well. Built in the 1920s during the ownership of either the Stinchcomb or Tomaino families this block garage still features its original rock faced front wall while its sixteen panel door has been painted so as to match the colors adorning the main house.

As an aside I’m not sure from a historical standpoint if this garage had ever been used by the Alvinos when they operated a grocery store out of the first floor through the late 1920s, or if it was used by the tenants residing on the second floor during that period. In any event by 1933 Mrs. Sarah Jarrell purchased the building and took up residence in the house while renting out her spare rooms to travelers. Mrs. Jarrell continued to reside in the house until her passing in the mid 1960s. Today the house is used as a single family residence.

Yes for going on one hundred years old I really like how well this Historic District garage shows its age.

Have a good week,

Glenn
