An American flag flies in the middle of a tiny yard behind a house on Jones Street in the West Central neighborhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A car takes up most of the space that is crisscrossed with clotheslines, and the old man who lives there sits beside the house in the background.

Jones Street Backyard #1

This little yard is crisscrossed with clotheslines decorated with stars and small American flags that converge on a short flagpole in the middle of the space with a regular-sized flag.

It is on Jones Street, east of College Street, an old brick road on the southern edge of the West Central neighborhood in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. The houses are right against the sidewalk, with no front yards, and small back yards barely big enough to serve as a driveway for a single car.

Most of the neighborhood to the north consists of large, opulent houses that were home to Fort Wayne's elite a century ago. The houses on this street are small, and in poorer condition. The western half of the largely empty General Electric plant that once employed thousands of people here is right across the railroad tracks that run along the south side of Jones Street.

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.
