Former UAW Union Hall

This old building is on South Coliseum Boulevard, across the street from the former International Harvester and Zollner Pistons factories on the southeast side of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The old painted sign on the side of the building says that it was a UAW (United Auto Workers) union hall, but it is now home to Next Level Party Room, a reception hall.

Interestingly, there is another former UAW hall right around the corner on Pontiac Street, just west of Coliseum Boulevard.

The southeast side of Fort Wayne was once heavily industrialized, and the area is littered with abandoned factories. The closure of the Harvester truck plant in 1982 devastated the city's economy. More than 3000 men worked there, all making middle class incomes. It took many years for Fort Wayne to recover from the loss of those high-paying jobs.

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.
