Here’s another early Nappanee photo showing a street view of the front of the Coppes, Zook & Mutschler Co. buildings. We can date this picture to after 1908-9 because of the details in the photo. The city of Nappanee paved East Market Street with bricks during 1908 as can be seen in this picture.

Also during 1909 the Coppes, Zook & Mutschler Company brought landscape specialist (See the young plantings) to Nappanee with the purpose of beautifying the streetscape in the area of the factory and where several members of the Coppes and Zook families live.
