Throwback Thursday: Banking House of A.W. Clarke 1909 Calendar Plate

It’s a #ThrowbackThursday leap year!

While 1909 was not a leap year, this calendar plate was likely created in the year prior 1908 which was a leap year. This decorative plate was given to customers of the Banking House of A.W. Clarke, which was the first bank in Papillion, Nebraska. The printing at the bottom of the plate reads “Compliments of Banking House of A.W. Clarke; Papillion, Nebr.”
