• I think the date of 1935 is incorrect. According to the Copper Country Architects' website, "During the first few years the bank utilized only the west half of the building and leased the other half to the Dry Goods Store of W. B. Hoar and Van Mourick. In 1902 the bank’s business started to grow, and slight renovations were completed to accommodate the growth." While one can't read the name of the business on the east side of the building, it would appear to be some sort of shop. Other photos of the bank show it with four archways across the south side, as it is now. eg: Also, the dress appears to be more 1890s than 1930s.
