Long Description:
In 1894 Baltimore City bought John Hopkins University's Clifton estate for use as a park in the northeast section of the city. The bandshell sits on the side of a hill between the golf course clubhouse and the baseball fields. In the early 1900's it saw a lot of more action, now a lot of the parks former self is slowly fading as generations come and go and things change. From the outside, the bandshell looks to be in great shape, though, it could use a little bit of TLC. The history of the actual bandshell is limited, however the following snippet came from the wikipedia page on Clifton Park.

"Band shell at Clifton Park:
Development of the park included construction of a band shell, where outdoor concerts were popular in the 1920s–1930s. The #19 streetcar line ran on a dedicated right-of-way along Clifton Park's Harford Road border until 1956." - Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clifton_Park,_Baltimore)
