Cup plate showing the brick theater on Holliday Street in Baltimore that was built in 1813 to replace an earlier wooden structure built in 1794.  Though the older theater was officially named the New Theater, and the later structure the Baltimore Theater, both were commonly known by their location on Holliday Street, eventually directly across from the City Hall.  The first performance of  The Star-Spangled Banner was given here in 1819.  It burned down in 1873.
