The Poughkeepsie Savings Bank, 1931

Some of the greatest U.S. thrift documents of the 20th century are these little histories of mutual savings banks, usually appearing in pamphlet form and produced by the banks themselves, usually to commemorate an anniversary. This booklet from 1931 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Poughkeepsie Savings Bank of Poughkeepsie, New York. Sincere, inspiring, and full of colorful local history -- these little treasures are really worth reading!
