Whutnots & Doodads Secondhand Merchandise #2

I first photographed this patriotic mural on the wall next to Whutnots & Doodads Secondhand Merchandise a year before I made this photograph. The mural is now peeling off the cinderblock wall.

There have been a few other murals on this wall over the years. When I was a teenager, it had a large handgun with an appeal to the neighborhood's residents to stop gang violence. Back then the building was a laundromat.

The building is on Broadway in Fort Wayne, Indiana.


Update: In 2016, Whutnots & Doodads closed.

Update II: The peeling Statue of Liberty mural was covered over and new mural depicting Native Americans was painted on the building in the summer of 2019.

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.
