|Title||Joseph & Pope, Drygoods|
|Description||The business enterprise, prosperity and solidity of a city are in a very great measure indicated by the extent and character of her commercial houses. The great dry goods houses, with their co-relative branches of trade have exercised a powerful influence upon the welfare of the community in which they are located, and in Bowling Green the prosperous and successful establishment of Joseph & Pope has become familiar, by trade and reputation, in all sections of the surrounding county. It is a great factor in the city's retail trade, and its history has been one of liberal ideas, honorable dealings and progressive methods. The house, since being established about one year ago has taken rank as a leader in this part of the county-a position to which it is justly entitled by reason of extensive transactions, magnitude of stock and the well known characters of the gentlemen composing the firm. Through all the years of its existence the firm of Joseph & Pope will maintain, with brightening reputation, the high degree of mercantile integrity and the elevated business enterprise with which it was inaugurated, and will ever be recognized as one of the largest and most reliable houses in northwestern Ohio.|
The South Main street premises are large in area, and in the different departments can be found such an extensive assortment of goods that it would be useless to give a detailed description of the immense stock carried. Suffice it to say that it consists of dry goods, notions, ladies' furnishings, cloaks, tailor-made suits, and is as large as any in this part of the state. Their trade is extensive all over this section, and doing such a large business it gives them the advantage over competitors of selling goods at a small margin, and at the same time realizing a reasonable profit. The establishment is a leading representative house of Bowling Green, and the name of Joseph & Pope has become co-extensive with the reputation of the city.
