A couple months ago a very nice lady came by the local history room looking for a collection of materials from the National Bank of Wilson (later First Union) that she had donated to the library in 2005. And to my embarrassment, I could not find any of the donated materials. The lady was very nice about it and went on her way, but it irked me. Flash forward to today and I was looking for something completely unrelated in the cavernous storage room and viola! I found the bank materials. Unfortunately, it is two months too late and I don’t remember what the nice lady’s name was. But here are some of the 68 images I found on a CD.
And for those not in the know, First Union was bought out by Wachovia in 2000 and Wachovia was eventually bought out by Wells Fargo after that.
