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. Randolph Harter is a Fort Wayne historian and author of two previous local history books. Daniel Baker is an award-winning photographer who has been documenting Northeast Indiana the past fifteen years.
