Streetcar at Carroll Park Barns, 1939 (now Maryland Transit Administration Bus Maintenance Facility).
In 1924, the city sold lands "unsuitable for park purposes" to the Montgomery Ward Co. which built a distribution center and retail store. The structure was reopened as an office building in 2002 with energy and water conservation innovations.
