This unidentified Indianapolis Fire Department negative dated 1946 appears to document an accident near the intersection of Fort Wayne Avenue, Saint Clair Street, and Alabama Street. This view looks northeast on Fort Wayne Avenue. Fortunately, it also shows an infrequently photographed neighborhood theater named Bair’s St. Clair Theatre (see a 1929 view in the Indiana Historical Society’s Bass Photo Collection). Other businesses at this busy intersection include a Sablosky’s Department Store, McCallum’s Market, a liquor store, Davis Cleaners, and a bakery. The smokestack in the distance is for Excelsior Laundry.
