Extra Old School Pic

Sure, big electric Santas and Christmas lights in downtown windows and wreaths on every door are great, but thereís something about this photo that sums up what a lot of us probably think about Midwest in the winter after the tree has been taken down, the friends and family go home, and the leftovers are all finished. Welcome to January! And mind the slush!

Actually, we donít have a year or month for this photo, but we do have a where and what. Youíre looking at the corner of Broadway and Washington. According to our information, thatís building became Fort Wayneís first medical college building, but at the time it was occupied by the Broadway Hotel and, as you can see, Hooverís 5 -$1 store.
