Thursday Doors (Baltimore PART 2 – The Wire Neighborhood)

Hello Readers – time to share some Thursday doors – and the rest of the photos from our May 2019 visit to Baltimore, MD (first post is HERE).  

TODAY’S DOORS

 

Johns Hopkins Hospital

Did you ever call this hospital “John Hopkins” without the “S” – many of us have…. ever wonder why it is not John sans “s” – here is why: 

The philanthropist Johns Hopkins is the hospital and university’s benefactor – and his first name was the surname of his great-grandmother, Margaret Johns, who married Gerard Hopkins. They named their son Johns Hopkins, who had a son named Samuel Hopkins, and then Samuel named one of his sons for his father, which was “Johns Hopkins”

  1. I love the doors on the corners of the buildings. I’ve seen them in older parts of town around here and think they’re cool.

    [My father graduated from Johns Hopkins. Woe be it to any child of his who mispronounced his alma mater. 🙄]

  2. Great photos, Yvette! They brought back a lot memories of visits to Baltimore. I always enjoyed the inner harbour. Years ago, my father’s eyesite was saved by a doctor at The John Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute.

    1. I actually knew that from when you mentioned it before (but it was a while ago -) and it shows that some of the allopathic care we have is effective – but I am mixed at many ways our “medical system” goes about certain health ailments. The American health system is NOT the best in the world – not at all – and we can learn from foreigners and we need to stop the greed and overpriced symptom management – but I digress

      1. I was glad to get past Sunday which was stormy off and on and a torrential rain – just when I thought it could not rain any more, it would rain even harder. A few more stormy days/evenings then nice cool and sunny almost Fall-like days. I’m sooooo ready!

  3. Yvette,

    You’ve outdone yourself with this gallery. And I’m not just saying that because you gifted me that shot . . . but I LOVE it. Baseball in Baltimore has such a rich history, in spite of the forgettable present. I love Camden Yards, and yes . . even though I’m a Yankees fan, I cannot wait for the day when the Orioles take it back from us. Right now, it’s the Bombers home away from home, but nah . . I want Baltimore baseball back. I want the days when the Yankees hated going into the old Memorial Stadium because it was going to be a gauntlet of a series. THAT was baseball.

    Did I mention I love your gift? 🙂

    And I love the Engine House 6 tower shot as well.

    Have a weekend as lovely as you.
