Built in the late 1920s, the Art Deco 10 Light Street is the first skyscraper in Baltimore. A detailed façade inspection was recently completed using 29 swing stage drops for close access--this led to a restoration project for the more than 325 m² (3500 sf) of Italian marble, replacing it with a durable quartzite from Brazil. This article examines what occurred during the reconstruction.
