The Strongest Door in Indianapolis

Driving through Indianapolis, I was surprised to see what looked like a heavy vault door on the front of a brick commercial building on the northeast corner of College Avenue and 24th Street.

My first thought was, "What the Hell are they storing in there that would need such a door?!?!" The south side of the building, facing 24th Street, has "24 On The Avenue" painted in gigantic letters covering much of the wall. There were no other signs, and the place appears to be vacant.

According to an article in the Indianapolis Star, the building was being converted into a restaurant and bar called Reclamation. The door, which weighs an incredible 8000 lb, is an actual bank vault door, taken from a bank that was demolished. The place was going to be decorated with things taken from demolished buildings.

Purchase Prints
by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.

Credit card payment is handled through Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account. When you checkout, you will be taken to Paypal's site. If you have a Paypal account, sign in and approve the payment.

If you do not have a Paypal account, and do not want to sign up for one, there is a link on the Paypal page that says "Don't have a Paypal Account?" Click it to pay without signing up. It will accept your credit card like a normal credit card payment.

Prints usually ship within 7 days. This allows time for me to make your print, and if you have ordered a framed print, to frame and mat it.
