The old Fort Wayne Mirror Works building on Broadway has an old Pepsi-Cola advertisement painted across the side of the building next to the brick chimney and a clock on the front of the building. The Pepsi ad says it is bottled by William Scheele and Sons.

Fort Wayne Mirror Works #1

The abandoned Fort Wayne Mirror Works building on Broadway in Fort Wayne. I drove past it in December, 2007, for the first time in a couple years, after returning to Fort Wayne from Santa Fe. The old grey siding that covered the building as long as I can remember had been removed, revealing this old Pepsi-Cola advertisement!

I have three photographs of this building online. See the next photograph of the Fort Wayne Mirror Works building.


Update: I made this photograph in 2007; by the beginning of 2013, the sign had been badly damaged by exposure to our harsh Indiana weather. By 2018, virtually nothing was left of it, and the building's owners painted over it with gray paint.

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.
