Looking Back, Dec. 5, 1963: Celebrating 50 years of banking in Quincy
The Quincy branch of the National Bank of Commerce will commemorate 50 continuous years of banking service in Quincy Friday, Dec. 6. Coffee and refreshments will be served during the day from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. In addition, the bank will be presenting all women visitors with an orchid.
Of special interest to visitors during the observance will be a large exhibit of old-time pictures of Quincy. Also a large coin collection will be on display.
Banking began here in 1904 with the Bank of Quincy. This firm was capitalized in the amount of $10,000 with David Richardson as the manager. That same year Richardson sold his interest to a man from South Dakota, Mr. F.M. Hale. The bank was disposed of again to H.H.S. Van Velsor, in December, 1905.
