Picturing the Past 175: Peoples Bank in '78Posted Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 3:28 PM
Several employees of the old Peoples National Bank at work in its old Depot Street building in 1978. (T-G file photo)
But there was another major change afoot at the same time: the old Peoples National Bank's move into the upcoming new building (now US Bank) at the hotel's former site.
That bank (some of whose leaders later formed First Community Bank, and which is not to be confused with today's Peoples Bank) was located on Depot Street for many years.
In February 1978, the bank ran several Times-Gazette ads spotlighting its personnel. The ads left us some good views of the bank's final days in its old home.
Go here for a larger view.
This was apparently one of the "inside" departments the public didn't see, accounting, bookkeeping, whatever -- with not a single computer visible. Guess they were still a few years away.
