This is the outside of Baker Street Train Station and Banquet Facility that has the 1930’s People’s Bank and Trust Clock that I wrote about yesterday on the right side of the building in front.

The building in another piece of Fort Wayne History and is on the National Register of Historical Places.

It was designed by William L. Price, an architect with Price and McLanahan out of Philadelphia, who designed other train stations between Pittsburgh and Chicago.  It opened in 1914 at a cost of $550,000 and during its heyday thousands of people passed through it, including a few Presidents and Presidential Candidates.
