This is the former Highland Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland.
Constructed in 1933 it was designed by architects Wyatt and Nolting and started life as the Patterson Park Junior High School.
Now, redeveloped as apartments, the building retains some of it's deco-era fittings including the light fixtures in the auditorium and a WPA mural. I'll didn't get inside so I'll have to go back to Bawlmer someday for a closer look.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
