Help recall Dashiell Hammett's Baltimore

Runner Patrick Maynard, who's part of the blogging corps at The Exercists, is putting together a route along sites related to author Dashiell Hammett. He has identified a number of them, but is looking for more suggestions. If you have any sites that could lengthen Patrick's route -- and help him shed some of the holiday pounds, just add a comment. And thanks in advance. Here are the sites so far:

Baltimore Polytechnic, where Hammett studied for a semester before dropping out.

Edmondson Avenue/Harlem Park, where a dream sequence began in "Red Harvest."

One South Calvert Street, formerly home of Pinkerton's Detective Agency, where Hammett worked.

Former B&O Railroad headquarters on Charles Street. (The railroad was one of his non-Pinkerton employers in Baltimore).

Mount Royal Station, through which a missing character's baggage was tracked in "The Girl with the Silver Eyes."

Union Station (now Penn Station), where one of the main characters in "The Assistant Murderer" bought a one-way ticket to Pennsylvania. (The whole story took place in Baltimore, so this is a slightly random sample).
