Storefronts on Wells Street

Three brick storefront buildings on the east side of Wells Street, between Fourth Street and Third Street, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The larger building on the left is the Welker Block, formerly the home of Linda Lou's Furniture. It was being renovated when I made this photograph. The middle building is Hyde Brothers Books, a used book store. The building on the right is a Mexican insurance agency called Seguros Y Mas Para Todos (Insurance and More For All). It is one of many Hispanic businesses that have opened on Wells Street in recent years.


Update: The Welker Block's renovations were completed in 2020; and two local businesses, a plant shop and a video production company, have moved into the building. Seguros Y Mas Para Todos has since moved to a new location.

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.
