The storefront on the north end of the Welker Block on Wells Street in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was a tavern called the Happen Inn, and later part of Linda Lous Furniture. This is the storefront before the 2019 renovations of the building.

Corner of Wells and Fourth Streets

This storefront is on the north end of the Welker Block, a century old brick building on the southeast corner of Wells Street and Fourth Street in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

When I was young, this part of the building was a rough bar called the Happen Inn. After the bar closed, the furniture store next door, Linda Lou's, expanded into the former bar's space. Linda Lou's didn't change the facade, which retained the octagonal tavern windows from the Happen Inn.

Linda Lou's went out of business in October, 2017. In early 2019, the building was extensively renovated and the old tavern storefront was removed and replaced with large modern windows.

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.
