International Harvester Factory #1

This brick tower stands in front of the old International Harvester plant in Fort Wayne. The closing of the factory in 1982 devastated the city's economy, as the factory's employees formed a large portion of Fort Wayne's middle class at the time. Some of the city's businessmen believe that the city has never really recovered from the loss of those good jobs thirty years ago!

The building still stands at the south end of Coliseum Boulevard on Fort Wayne's southeast side. It has been divided into smaller warehouse and industrial units. When I was a kid, it was used as an indoor flea market, which my family went to often to bargain-hunt.

The tower, which was originally a water tower, is no longer used for that purpose. Today, it stands as a silent reminder of the long-gone days when thousands of men built Harvester trucks here.

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.
