I love this site. Like love. Like would ponder giving up Butterfinger's for a day for this site.
It's so cool to find pictures of people, places and things that you either forgot - or maybe remembered - but no one else could corroborate ;).
ANYWAY - I found a couple of pictures that I wanted to share with you. They aren't just any ordinary pictures. Only I - KFH - would be curious enough to go hunt these pups down (this - I am convinced!!).
Picture #1 - Remember the Fred Astaire Dance Studio? And Indiana Bank?
Hah! There they are! Proof that they existed - and both - downtown. Just as I remembered them.
The picture I pulled this from can be found here
West Washington Blvd at South Harrison Street. Date 04/26/1979.
I love cropping tools!
Picture #2/3 - Cat's Meow and More!
Sure, you remember the Cat's Meow - c'mon - that is a piece of Fort Wayne history.
There are STORIES - tons of stories to be told about this place. I know someone out there is dying to share...
But - do you remember Louie's Chop Suey?! And look at that Stoner's sign!
You can find the original picture that I pulled these two images from here
708 South Harrison Street and West Main Street. Date 01/04/1974.
Picture #4/#5 - On the surface, the picture is a view of Harrison Street, looking North and specifically - the Shell station is within view. That's cool, right? Oh boy - it doesn't stop there. Lookie what else I found!
Where the Hamburgers are 5 Cents! Boy, that place hasn't changed much (except for the price).
Anyway - throughout the week - I'll be posting my many finds.
Thanks for humoring me - and who knows - maybe I'll find one of those gems that you thought was only in your imagination...
