We turn now to a local gardener and historic consultant who has written a book about the neighborhood of Guilford, in North Baltimore. Originally the country estate of the founder of the Baltimore Sun, A. S. Abell, since 1913, it has been one of Baltimore’s most beautiful and affluent neighborhoods. Ann Giroux lives in Guilford; her book is part of the Images of America series which includes books on many other neighborhoods and institutions in Baltimore and beyond.
Ann Giroux will be leading a walking tour of Guilford with an architect, David Gleason Sunday afternoon at 1:00. She’ll also talk about book at the Roland Park branch of the Enoch Pratt Library on October 28th.
