Elyria (Ohio) Savings and Banking Company, 1903

W.C. LeMaster, cashier
The Elyria Savings and Baking Company

A cursory search of the Internet Archive for Elyria, Ohio turned up the booklet Picturesque Elyria. Her enterprising citizens and her industries, published in 1903 by the Elyria Souvenir Company of Elyria, Ohio.  There, I located the advertisement for the bank where my paternal great-granduncle, William Clifford LeMASTER, was the head cashier.

What a great find to locate a photograph of my relative during this time period.  As I've discovered in other searches, he was a city councilman, quite a bowler, and later went west to Colorado.
