Warren's Main Drag

This block of old brick commercial buildings stands on the east side of Wayne Street (State Road 5) in the small town of Warren, Indiana. The store with the "Try Prayer" sign is actually a bicycle shop, and the building on the right side, with the burgundy awning, is Warren's Town Hall.

Most of Indiana's small towns still have blocks of two-story or three-story brick buildings along their main streets (usually a highway that runs through the middle of town). The first floor is usually occupied by storefront businesses, and the upper floors are either apartments of warehouse space for the stores below.

Buildings like this have largely disappeared from Indiana's larger cities. The only example left in my hometown, Fort Wayne (Indiana's second largest city), is in Waynedale. Waynedale was originally a small town before being absorbed by the city in the late 1950s.


Update: The building on the left, with the "Troubled? Try Prayer" sign, burned down in 2017.

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.
