A small American flag hangs below the window of an apartment to show the resident's patriotism next to the metal stairway that leads to an ornate carved wood panel door on the second floor of the Elzey building on Lower Huntington Road in the Waynedale section of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Elzey is an old brick commercial building on Waynedale's main street with apartments on the second floor.

The Elzey Building

This is the back side of the Elzey Building on Lower Huntington Road in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The ornate apartment door seems out of place on the old rundown rear facade of this building.

The Elzey houses many of Waynedale's locally owned small businesses such as the Waynedale Bakery, Hook and Ladder Tavern, a dance studio, and Dragon's Keep Cafe.

The rear entrance to Dragon's Keep was next to this stairway on the first floor. Unfortunately, they went out of business in late 2008.

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.
