The faucet repair counter on the back wall of Waynedale Plumbing Supply. A sign above the counter says new life for your faucet. Faucet parts dating back to the 1950s are still on display on the pegboard wall behind the old glass counter.

New Life For Your Faucet #2

The faucet repair counter at Waynedale Plumbing Supply. The signs above the counter say: "New Life For Your Old Faucet."

Many of the faucet parts on the wall behind the counter are decades old. Built in 1946, Waynedale Plumbing looks like a place frozen in time. The owner, Virgil Hoke, told me that he and his now-deceased brother, Homer, bought the business in 1950!

I had first photographed this scene four years earlier in black & white, and little has changed in those four years!

Waynedale Plumbing is on Lower Huntington Road in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

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.
