unidentified building
Fort Wayne, IN
Illinois Central School Bus
Gary, IN
This unidentified building features a folded plate roof. The building was apparently vacant in 2009. Does anyone know what the original occupant was? My guess from the exhaust fan on the roof and the possible take-out window on the left is that this was a fast food restaurant of some kind. [map]
