Painted in 1965 by John S. Coppin, these murals are titled Man's Mobility - 1905, 1965, 1855. Of them, Coppin said, "Man's will and his creative imagination have impelled him ever onward, thus has come new knowledge, understanding, peace, dignity and fulfillment." These murals are amongst many at the Detroit Public Library Main Branch that can be viewed anytime the Library is open.
