Baltimore is a city of historic rowhouses, but one of its most common types isn't historic at all. The post-World War II Early American rowhouse is the unsung hero of Baltimore housing. A plain red brick front with a few Colonial flourishes around the front door, it fills block after block and gives neighborhoods such as Chinquapin Park a feeling of stability. Set back from the sidewalk with their own little lawns, on curving streets with tall mature trees, Chinquapin Park's no-nonsense houses are affordable, easy to maintain and rather handsome.

"Scottie" Scott, a retired Maryland Transit Administration bus driver who was an ardent collector of Motown music and artifacts that earned him the sobriquet of "Mr. Motown," died Friday of bladder cancer at Good Samaritan Hospital.
