The Dangers of Banking, 1949

Here’s a fun little neighborhood tidbit from July  26, 1949. Apparently the burglar alarm gas system was accidentally set off at the old City Bank located at 3608 Georgia Avenue (click image for story) causing discomfort for both staff and customers. The bank was located where E.L. Haynes is currently, and became part of York Haberdasher in 1965.
