Bakery Counter At Egolf's IGA

When I was young, my family often went camping at Chain-O-Lakes State Park. To get there from our home in Fort Wayne, we had to pass though the small town of Churubusco, Indiana. We usually stopped at Egolf's IGA on US-33, which was the small town's grocery store, to buy sugar cookies from the store's bakery.

A couple of weeks before I made this photograph, my son and I drove up to Churubusco, which is about 15 miles northwest of Fort Wayne. On a whim, I decided to go to the IGA store to see if they still sold those sugar cookies. It had been 25 years since the last time my parents had bought them for me there, but they still sold them! I bought a bag of them for me, and a bag of chocolate chip cookies for Mack.

When we went back to buy more, I brought a camera and asked if I could photograph the bakery counter. They still had their Fourth of July decorations up! The decal at the bottom of the counter says "Celebrate the USA."

The two brown paper bags on the counter are the cookies we bought after I finished photographing the place.

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.
