Notes
Survey number HABS MD-1019
Significance: The buildings at 1403-1411 Laurens Street are representative of the early 20th century commercialization of Baltimore's late 19th century neighborhoods and of the concurrent racial change from white to black as the inner city black population moved outward, following the move of white residents to new suburbs. The row of shops with an automobile garage was built about 1921, with various small services such as a tailor and shoe repair shop fronting the car repair shop. The first occupant was the Frisby Service Garage, a black-owned enterprise, which indicates the increasing dominance of black residency in the area.
