Cork Crown and Seal: The bottle cap was invented in Baltimore. The inventor formed the Cork Crown and Seal Co. and started out on Guilford Ave. Notice how a bottle cap looks like a little crown sort of? That was a major invention in it's day believe it or not. In the late 1920s they build a massive 7 acre factory in Highlandtown. CC&S moved to Philadelphia in the 1950s and left all this behind of course. I suppose since then they have just rented out parts of the factory as warehouse space, or that is what they do these days. A large portion of it is being rented out but it seems this one end looks largely abandoned. I have seen pictures from inside here and it is kind of neat looking. But seems like the entrances change all the time. I will have to actually get out and scout it up close.
