ANNEXATION ACT. 769
1918, Ch. 82.
AN ACT to extend the limits of Baltimore City by including therein
parts of Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County.*
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Maryland,
That there is hereby added to the territory of Baltimore City all the
territory lying between the boundaries of Baltimore City as they existed
prior to the passage of this Act and the boundaries fixed by this Act
as follows:
BEGINNING for the same at the point of intersection formed by
the centre line of Park Heights avenue and the centre line of Slade
avenue and running thence by a straight line due south to the centre
line of Frederick road; thence southeasterly by a straight line to the
point of intersection formed by the centre line of the Annapolis or
Light street road and the centre line of the direct road leading from
Brooklyn to Pumphrey, said intersection being about two-thirds of a
mile southwesterly from the Anne Arundel County end of the Hanover
street bridge across the Patapsco River; thence still southeasterly by a
straight line to a point on the west bank of Curtis Creek, about 118
feet southwesterly from the west end of the highway bridge across Cur-
tis Creek at Walnut Point; said point having a latitude north 39 degrees
12 minutes 29.2 seconds and longitude west 76 degrees 35 minutes 02.2
seconds (based upon the United States standards of datum of the United
States Coast and Geodetic Survey) ; thence still southeasterly by a
straight line to a point of latitude north 39 degrees 11 minutes 50
seconds and longitude west 76 degrees 33 minutes 00 seconds (based
upon the same United States standards of datum of the United States
Coast and Geodetic Survey); thence northeasterly by a straight line
to the centre of the front range light of the Brewerton Channel, located
near Hawkins Point, and continuing in the same direction to a point
distant 1,000 feet northeasterly from said centre of said range light;
thence by a straight line due north to intersect a line drawn due east
from the place of beginning; thence reversing said line so drawn and
binding thereon due west by a straight line to the place of beginning.
The courses in the above description are all referred to the true
meridian of the City of Baltimore Topographical Survey Commission.
SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That, except as hereinafter other-
wise provided, all the provisions of the Constitution of Maryland and
of the Baltimore City Charter, and other local laws applicable to Bal-
timore City, and all the existing ordinances of Baltimore City, shall be
and the same are hereby extended and made applicable to such portions
*The act of 1918, chapter 82, commonly known as the Annexation Act, is not a
general law and hence has no proper place in the Annotated Code. In view, how-
ever, of the interest of this act to the state in general and its importance to
Baltimore City and the two counties affected, the annexation act and the act of
1918, chapter 283, supplementary thereto, are here printed in full.
As to the act regulating the licensing of horse racing in certain parts of Balti-
more County annexed to Baltimore City by the act of 1918, chapter 82, see the
act of 1918, chapter 264.
