Bank of Au Sable Forks - Advertisement

I had to laugh at this advertisement from April 1926 in The Adirondack Record:

An Account of Her Own
The feeling of financial independence that comes to a woman having a Bank Account of her own is shown in her keener interest in life.  She can feel more certain of her plans for enjoying the smaller pleasures without being dependent upon her husband for the mony. [sic}
Bank of Au Sable Forks
Au Sable Forks, New York

I did some research and found that the Bank opened on September 10, 1910 and closed on September 27, 1941.  The Bank was absorbed by the Plattsburgh National Bank, Plattsburgh, New York.

Now the building is home to the Tahawus Lodge Center .
