Electric box portraits of Frederick Douglass & Harriet Tubman in Baltimore, Maryland [300 block of North Howard Street]

Bawlmore and Bodymore is replete with powerful public art murals throughout the Southwest, Eastside and Westside.

Beyond the periphery of downtown, around the corner from the Maryland Historical Society, along a largely abondonded commercial strip of North Howard Street there is an electrix box with Dr. Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman on alternate sides.

We will include these images in our planned Douglass in Murals Exhibit.
