description:

The Nurre Mirror Plate Company was located on the west side of Madison Street north of Eighth Street in Bloomington, Indiana. It was the sister company of Showers Brothers Furniture Company. Nurre also constructed glass backboards for basketball. Their glass backboards were installed in the second floor basketball courts of what was then known as the Men's Gym (now, 2012, part of the Wildermuth / HPER complex). See image P0028064 for information about how IU was not the first to have glass backboards.
