The Dresden Bank, pt. 2

Three gentleman outside the Dresden Bank on the town square.

Original bank advertisement in the December 13, 1895 edition of the Dresden Enterprise.  Notice the competing ad by the Weakley Co. Bank just above the Dresden Bank advert.

Banks used to give away all sorts of things as incentives for you to bank with them.  Here is probably the only surviving potholder that The Dresden Bank gave to it's customers complete with asbestos backing!  Since the potholder declare's that the bank is safe, solvent and sound it probably dates from 1926-27 because the Dresden Bank failed in 1927.
