The Old Shot Tower, Baltimore

National Geographic, February 1927.

Completed in 1828, at 234-1/4 feet, it was the tallest structure in the U.S.  It's still standing, but I doubt that it holds height the record anymore.  Below, when no longer used for making shot, it made for good advertising.

Discoverers Weapons.  London:  Sparrow Books, 1980.
