Wolf & Dessauer's newest downtown building in Fort Wayne had a fifth floor for ofices. I was on TV almost every year with Santa, Hilliard Gates, and Wee Willie Wand!
I am just old enough to remember the fire at the old store. My mother and one of my uncles used to work there!
The escalators were always fun!! I remember when W&D opened an anchor store at the defunct Southtown Mall, and morphing into L.S. Ayres.
I remember Mr. Latz as well.
If I ever figure out what wiki is all about, I would love to comment on my memories of Fort Wayne and W&D with anyone with an interest. Tom Nisen
