Welcome to another Bill’s History Corner. As has been the practice for the past couple months I am still working from home going through the boxes of business receipts that we found in a back corner of the factory. Someone thought these were important enough to keep, unlike so many of the other records from the companies. So let's investigate who or what they were for.

Welcome to this week’s Bill’s History Corner. Shop Local is a term you hear a lot. Back in 1904-6 it was difficult to shop anywhere but local. As I was searching the latest box of business receipts looking for a topic for the next History Corner, I found some receipts from stores I had never heard of before.

Today we are looking at two pictures that were labeled “Coppes & Zook office girls.” The reason I'm writing about these women is that there aren’t any names attached to the pictures. Someone in this photo could be your ancestor. Do you recognize anyone? Do you have a copy of this same picture in your photo album? Do you know when or where it was taken? I want to learn the answers to all those questions. I hope you can help.
