The search for Voltamp

Many of you have read my visit to the Schieble factory blog from a few months ago. Now, I am on a quest to locate the original Voltamp factory building, if it still exists. If anyone has early Voltamp literature listing an address please reply to this blog. Currently I know that they were in a building called the Nichol Building in downtown Baltimore but I have not located a street address. Voltamp was in business around the turn-of-the-century and made electric novelty toys and early tinplate trains. The company was started by Manes A. Fuld who lived in Baltimore from 1863 until his death in 1929. He was the son of a stove dealer who lived on Orleans Street in downtown Baltimore.

Thanks for the help. Image from Bertoia Auctions.
