Bromo Seltzer Tower

Erected in 1911, this 289-foot tower was once headquarters for the Emerson Drug Co., manufacturers of the antacid Bromo Seltzer (for decades marketed in blue bottles, which explains why a giant blue bottle sat atop the tower until 1936). Although Bromo Seltzer left Baltimore long ago, the distinctive tower remains (is there a skinnier office building anywhere?), now used as an artists' space.
