Remembering Fort Wayne by Scott M. Bushnell

At the centennial of its founding by General Anthony Wayne in 1794, the city of Fort Wayne could boast prosperity and rapid growth as a leading industrial center of the Midwest. By the start of World War I, it had become the second-largest city in Indiana. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Fort Wayne, Scott M. Bushnell provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Fort Wayne. The images collected here offer a kaleidoscopic look into the history of this remarkable city, from its early days to recent times. Remembering Fort Wayne captures unique and rare scenes of the city through the lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique metropolis. Remembering Fort Wayne is sure to captivate anyone curious about the city’s past, from the student of history to the local history buff.
