A Different Type of Artifact

Above is a small plaque that would have been attached to a house that had a mortgage. The plaque was a way for the City Trust and Banking Company to advertise. This is similar to the small plastic signs landscapers and other companies often require homeowners to place in their yard after completing some service for them. The above plaque is just a little more subtle.
