The Funnies - Bank Failure (1894)

Judge's Library, January 1894

I think this one qualifies for the Everything New is Old Again category too. All too often we think that bank failures only happened in the 30's during the Great Depression. Before FDIC, depositing your earnings could be risky business. Hence stuffed mattresses and buried Mason jars!
