They Closed Our Favorite Pizza Hut

This is the Pizza Hut at the corner of Covington Road and Getz Road at the Time Corners shopping center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was one of the oldest Pizza Hut locations in Fort Wayne.

My family went there often when I was a very young child, nearly 40 years ago, and my son and I ate there once or twice a week. We knew everyone who worked there, and a few of them had been working there for more than 20 years!

We were saddened to learn that the store was going to close forever in the middle of October, 2014. There are a lot of other Pizza Huts in Fort Wayne, but this one was special. I made this photograph a couple of weeks after the restaurant closed. The building was already being prepared for demolition.

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.
