Baltimore – 9/11 Memorial

Located next to the World Trade Center building in Baltimore is this memorial to all those who died in the 9/11 tragedy in New York in 2001. This memorial was unveiled in 2011 to mark the tenth anniversary and the names of 68 people from Maryland who died on the day are inscribed.

The steel on top of the memorial comprises of three beams which were once part of the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York. I didn’t realise at the time the significance of this, but around the marble there are times of what happened during that dreadful day, and on 9/11 every year the shadow from the sun corresponds with that time of the day.
