Voors Jewelry #2

Voors Jewelry is a tiny locally-owned jewelry store in the middle of a strip of small storefronts on Lower Huntington Road in Waynedale. I first photographed it in 2003, and it is interesting to see the changes that thirteen years have brought.

The store on the left is a pawnshop now. In 2003, that space was a ceramics shop called The Raindrop Shoppe, which had been there for decades. The storefront on the right still has the same used clothing store that was there in 2003. Voors hasn't changed in appearance at all, though the rest of the building has had new siding installed.

Opened in 1949 by the current owner's father, Voors is one of the oldest businesses in Waynedale.

Waynedale, founded in the early 1920s, was once a small town. In 1957, it became part of the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana's second largest city. Though Waynedale has been part of Fort Wayne longer than it was an independent small town, it still looks like the small rural town that it once was. Aside from a Kroger store, a Walgreens, and a couple of fast food restaurants, all of the businesses in Waynedale are still small locally-owned places.

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.
