The Lincoln Tower is the tall building in the background. It was built in the 1930’s and is the 3rd tallest building in Fort Wayne and until 1962, was the tallest building in the State of Indiana.
I worked on the 4th floor of the building years ago when it was Lincoln National Bank. The lobby is breathtaking with its marble floors and a fresco on the ceiling. If you ever watch the movie “In The Company of Men”, which was shot in Fort Wayne, the lobby is in the last scene.
It also has a snack bar on the first floor that used to (and may still) have an old time soda fountain.
Being an older building, when I worked there it had older building problems. Although I was never personally stuck in the elevators, there were several people in the building that did when I worked there. There was also an issue with adding phone lines, but the worst had to be the restrooms that were in the stairwell and sometimes we would see cockroaches as long as your middle finger.
