W.F.Burns Company,Promotional Steel Bank"United State"

To Mr Walter Francis Burns of New-York and chicago is due the credit for the growth and practical operation of the Home Savings Bank System as applied to banking.Having perfected a practical home bank which was designed to be a valueble help to banking institutions, he next originated a plan by which the bank could be put in the hands of depositors and money saved therein put in possession of the banker.Perhaps no other man of this gennration has exerted such a widely extented influence in financial matters as Mr burns. Certainly no one has interested so many people in saving and brought such vast sums to the bank deposits of the country. his success is an example of what can be accomplished by persistent effort, a deterined purpose, a high aim, and intelligent direction. he has made the Home Saving Bank idea and the name W.f.burns Co. known wheever modern banking methods are in vogue; and the name of his company is synonym for good goods, good work and good results. *********************************************************************************** Brief historical Profile of W.F.
