I Know What I Know – Or Do I?

This small calendar is an advertising sample from 1921 for the Bank of Warren in the towns of Warrenton and Norlina in North Carolina. The colorful Egyptian imagery of sphinx, winged scarab, and lotus blooms is paired with a head-scratching adage. The bank’s self-description states: “This bank extends courteous and liberal treatment to every depositor, whether the account be large or small. This policy is the reason for our daily growth in strength and public favor. We pay 4 per cent on savings accounts.”
