Squint Shot 040812

Here's a fun bit of memoriabilia from Fowlerville.  The Community State Bank, that was located on East Grand River in the southeast quadrant, had this cardboard stocking as a way to give $1.00 in dimes to your son, daughter, niece, or nephew.  In the mid-1900s, $1.00 would made for an awesome shopping trip to Tomion's, or Woods Drugs, or Spagnuolo's -- all wonderful places to get candy or ice cream. 

I kind of equate this gift with the now highly-used plastic cards with monetary values put on them for shopping, eating out, or heading to a book store.
