Hardee's Christmas Star

The giant "Christmas Star" mounted above the front porch on this house is actually a sign from a Hardee's fast food restaurant. The man who lives there is a construction worker who recently worked on the demolition of a closed Hardee's location, and he was allowed to keep the star from the sign.

The house is on Ardmore Avenue, across the street from Elmhurst High School, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

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.
