FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Jan. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Fort Wayne Through Time

Local Authors Randolph L. Harter and Daniel A. Baker will be available to sign copies of book


Most of Fort Wayne's buildings and architecture from the early- to mid-1900s has been lost in the last fifty years to modern structures or parking lots. Fort Wayne Through Time reaches into the area's largest public and private image archives to compare what was and what is. Included with each of the comparative sets of images is an interesting history of the structure, company, or event.

Who were the Fort Wayne Daisies? What happened to the 5,000-seat League Park?  When was the courthouse constructed? Where did Anthony Wayne's statue originally sit? Why was Reservoir Park built? These and hundreds of other questions are answered in this informative journey through Fort Wayne's past.

Highlights from the book include:

·         The book includes 89 sets of images, 178 total images, dating from 1908 to more contemporary changes in the city's skyline.

·         Images were replicated from the tops of a number of downtown buildings including the Lincoln Tower, Three Rivers Apartments, Courthouse Dome, St. Joe Hospital, Lincoln Life and others.

·         Images in the book come from the News-Sentinel, Journal Gazette, Allen county Public Library, History Center, ARCH, and private collections.
