    Good Morning CW Members--- 10:30 AM)2016-10-10
    This is another advertising steel bank from my collection, this one promoted the"La Crosse County Bank, West Salem, Wisconsin"
    I did't post many yet of this model, nickel chrome plated, smaller then the 1895 and 1901 model, still manufactured by w.f.burns company, Chicago, Illinois.
    This little bank stand , 3 inch tall, 4 inch wide, 1.75 inch thick, small little handle at the top, hole for bill, slot for coin on the right side.

    Many Thanks Everyone for Viewing.


    West Salem was platted in 1856. It was named Salem by a Baptist minister named Elder Card because the word meant "peace" in Arabic and Hebrew. The word West was added to the name when mail was confused with another town in the state named Salem.

    The donation of approximately ten acres of land to a railway company led to the creation of West Salem. A station was built in West Salem on the original Milwaukee and La Crosse Railway which ran to La Crosse. It was later taken over by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway (later becoming the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad). The railway used the land to build a depot and tracks.

      Hebrew is an Arabic language/dialect.
