This photo was copied from page 7 of the February 1943 edition of the "Old Fort News," a publication of The Allen County-Fort Wayne Historical Society. Sitting left to right are Frederick Nirdlinger, Sigmund Redelsheimer, Isaac Lauferty and Frederick's business partner, Abraham Oppenheimer. (NOTE: Frederick has a thick, curly head of hair. So check out the picture of his grandnephew, George Edwin Nirdlinger, grandson of Jacob Nirdlinger -- Fred's brother. You will see that George is a 'dead ringer' for Fred.
