Charles Street from Mt. Vernon Place


A snowy scene looking south on Charles Street in Baltimore's Mt. Vernon neighborhood. An equestrian statue of General LaFayette is viewed from behind. After moving to Baltimore from France, the artist and her husband lived in an apartment in Mt. Vernon from 1933-1934. This view might have been rendered from their upper floor apartment on the square, or even from the entrance to the Washington Monument itself.
