Gray, Brown, Black… and Butter Yellow?

Steward Manor’s hallways have seen many a coat of paint over the years, as these handrails at 104 Morris Dr. (above) and 106 Woodland Ct. (below) can attest. From behind the chipped edges of the current gray paint, we can see traces of the gloss black and brown eras, both of which I can recall on Bryan Ct. in the 1980s.

A chipped rub rail at 100 Sharon Ct. (below) gives us an idea of just how many layers its seen through the decades, including an unexpectedly bright butter yellow—a color that was also found behind the fire alarm card at 12 Woodland Ct. (bottom).

I seem to remember the yellow on Sharon Ct. at some point, now that I’ve seen it again. Does anyone remember (or better yet, have photos of) their hallways at specific points in time?


About Richard Friend

I'm a graphic designer and creator of "Lost Laurel"—a collection of photos and print ephemera chronicling the countless stores, restaurants, and other long-lost merchants of Laurel, Maryland. I'm interesting in hearing from any former/current residents, especially those with vintage photos, literature, and recollections of the community.
