Annapolis, Maryland Panoramic Skyline Picture

SKU: ANN2
This aerial panorama, taken by James Blakeway, captures a beautiful summer day of the capital of Maryland. Since its early colonial days, Annapolis has been known as the "Athens of America," with its wealth of cultural activities, glittering social season, gracious hospitality and intellectual stimulation. The city lies on Maryland's Western Shore, 25 miles south of Baltimore and 30 miles east of Washington, DC. For many, Annapolis is synonymous with the United States Naval Academy, situated on the mouth of the Severn River and prominently pictured in this photograph on the right. Also clearly visible in this picture, just right of center, is the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, home of the Navy Midshipmen football team.

Annapolis, Maryland City Skyline Wall Decor

Annapolis skyline prints feature exciting aerial views of Maryland's capital. In addition, this was the U.S. capital from 1783 to 1784. Annapolis city skyline wall art shows a range of architectural styles in American history. The city was founded on the north shore of the Severn River in 1649. Hence, any Annapolis skyline pictures feature this waterway, situated at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.

An important landmark seen in many Annapolis skyline pictures is the Maryland State Capitol building. During the founding of the United States, all four signers of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland made their home here. In addition, many more historical sites may be spotted in Annapolis skyline pictures. The United States Naval Academy, founded in 1845, sits in an area between the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay. The Maryland State House, seen in some Annapolis panoramic pictures, is the oldest legislative building still in use in the nation. Also, U.S. President George Washington resigned before the Continental Congress in this building in 1783.

Because of its storied past, Annapolis skyline pictures feature some of the most incredible examples of 17th and 18th century architecture in the United States. The buildings in Annapolis skyline pictures serve as an interesting study into early Americana and remind us of our past and a time which was simpler. With many buildings within the city listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, views of the Annapolis skyline in these panoramic pictures offer something of interest to everyone.
