Here are two more photographs of the old newspaper vending machines lined up against the wall next to the loading docks along the front of the Fort Wayne Newspapers building on Main Street in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. I posted the first of the photos I made of them a few days ago.
These old newspaper vending machines are lined up against the wall next to the loading docks along the front of the Fort Wayne Newspapers building on Main Street in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The red ones sold Fort Wayne’s morning paper, the Journal-Gazette; while the blue ones sold the evening paper, the News-Sentinel.
Fort Wayne Newspapers handles printing and distribution for the city’s two daily newspapers, which remain independent of each other in every other respect. Fort Wayne is unique for a midsize American city; few of them still have more than one daily newspaper.
I found this house on Elnora Drive, just northeast of the intersection of Washington Center Road and Coldwater Road, on the north side of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
When I knocked on the door to ask permission to photograph the shed behind the house, an Asian kid answered the door and told me that his parents didn’t speak English, but it was ok for my to photograph it. They were renovating the house, which is why there are piles of wood in the yard.
Magic Wand is a locally owned restaurant in the small town of Churubusco, Indiana. I first ate here as a young boy, when my family would stop here on our way to Chain-O-Lakes State Park, where we often went camping.
Customers buying ice cream often go to the walk-up window to order, then eat on the tables in front of the restaurant.
