2016 Race Report: Poe’s Toaster



Here's a Sculpture!

Poe’s Toaster

Each year from the 1930s through 2009, early in the morning on the January 19th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe, a shadowy figure with a black hat and scarf would approach Poe’s original gravesite at the Westminster Hall and Burial Ground in Baltimore and raise a cognac toast. Poe’s Toaster celebrates this decades-long mysterious tradition.

Poe’s Toaster provided the first sighting of a Greenland Paddle at the Baltimore Race.
