Photo Friday - Bells Part 31

Welcome back to Photo Friday. Here, I one or more photos each Friday. I will do my best to relate it to It's a Wonderful Life.


This week’s entry is the bell that sits in front of the Salvation Army Church building on Tarr Street in North Baltimore OH. The building now sits empty. These photos were taken March 29, 2015.







The bell seen in the above photos is just down the street from this memorial marker for Jesse Baker, who as a night policeman who was shot and killed on this spot on June 19, 1896. Several blocks away from this memorial, near another church with a bell, and right next to the library, is a second memorial for another officer shot on duty in North Baltimore. It used to be an old oil boom town full of bars and brothels.
Another view of the memorial marker for Jesse Baker. North Baltimore's train station can be seen in the background of the photo. The marker sits on Tarr Street, which is the only remaining brick road in the village. Directly behind me is an amazing home built in the 1800s that I considered buying at one point. It has a hitching post in the front yard.
