Early in the summer, the Mulberry Street that cuts through downtown Baltimore becomes just one of many Mulberry Streets. From the Charles Village end of Guilford Avenue, one of my recently-graduated students writes, ''. . . Mulberries fall to the cement making a sweet slick patch . . .''Ricky's letter/poem flies me to a mid-city lot, now the site of a bank. Officially ''vacant'' during most of my Baltimore childhood, this lot was crowded with mulberry trees that grew crowds of neighborhood children as soon as PS 53 and ''Saints Philip and James'' let out for the summer.

The Mulberry Empire, by Philip Hensher. Alfred A. Knopf. 512 pages. $26. Among historical novelists there is a class that aims for something superior to your average Michener or Uris potboiler. One thinks of Guy Garcia, Susan Sontag and now, Philip Hensher, author of The Mulberry Empire. Members of this "better" breed are intellectually and aesthetically more ambitious than the best-selling writers but often lack the best sellers' ability to engage us in a tightly constructed story of a faraway time and place.

Here we go round the mulberry bush, The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush. Here we go round the mulberry bush, So early in the morning. Never in my childhood singing of that cloying Mother Goose nursery rhyme did I imagine that its words would one day have a literal meaning for me. Yet here I am at first light these June mornings, walking slowly around the large weeping mulberry across from our front door, carefully plucking small, dark berries from...

The naysayers have warned for years that there is no market for new housing in the Eutaw Street corridor.They've predicted that nothing, short of free rent, would entice people to move to the area north of Lexington Market.But the so-called experts were wrong, by at least 100 people.That's the number of residents who already have moved to Mulberry Court, the $4.2 million apartment complex that recently opened at the northeast corner of Mulberry and Eutaw streets. And more are on the way.With its bluish-purple walls and bright yellow downspouts, the 62-unit complex is the first example of housing built from scratch in the Market Center area in nearly a decade.

Before there was Caller I.D., there was the telephone exchange.This is a term that must baffle those who know only touch tone, area code, star and pound.Consider Homewood, Calvert, Ridgeway and Elgin. These were once a part of daily communication usage in Baltimore. If you lived at Fleet and Milton you might have been an Eastern or a Broadway. Those were telephone exchanges -- actual neighborhood buildings where operators toiled to hand-connect wires on a switchboard.Those blessed with perfect telephonic memory will recall some of Baltimore's classic numbers of the retail trade: Calvert 1000 was O'Neill's department store.

OPERA 'DEAD MAN WALKING' Operas don't get more relevant or provocative than Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking. Based on Sister Helen Prejean's best-selling book and with a potent libretto by Terrence McNally, the piece from 2000 takes the audience deep into the thorny issue of capital punishment, touching just about every side along the way. A combination of taut drama (with some welcome humor) and an accessible score (with some richly melodic music) have made this one of the most popular works of American music-theater in decades.
