This aerial photograph of part of South Baltimore shows railroad tracks in the foreground, row houses and neighborhood shops, then Federal Hill, and at the top the skyscrapers of downtown.  The most prominent feature in the foreground is the National Center for the Blind, covering an entire block, beside Riverside Park.  We can see the south face of the Jernigan Institute on Wells Street.  Byrd Street can be seen on the west side of the Institute.  Embracing the JI are the two wings of the NFB’s original building, one along Johnson Street on the east and the other along Barney Street on the north.
