Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

I stil have my Citizen's Bank savings book. :DReplyDelete
My goodness---that takes me back in memories to my first savings account at Genesee Bank. I was making $3.35 an hour, working 40 hours a week at age 16 during the summer, and a little cash was stashed into that bank with the passbook presented to the teller at the Franklin and Davison branch.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great find!
Citizen's Bank was my first bank and my bank was over on Clio Road near the A & W. (now long gone sadly!) My purse was stolen while I was at work and my passbook was in it. I was working at Arby's on Clio ROad. Luckily they did not get my hard earned money from a teller the next day.ReplyDelete
I remember using those, thats how me and my sister got allowonces, had to put some in a bank account.ReplyDelete
it was part of my moms way of teaching us how to save money, dont know if it worked or not, more then likely not, but wshe did teach us the meaning of hard work, my dad too!
Me too, grumkin ... there's even still a small balance ...ReplyDelete
Citizen's was my 1st bank, there across from Shumakers. I was bussin' tables at the old pancake house(which was a lot better than working at Bill Knapp's up Miller).I think I was 13yr at that point in time. Jeremy, Your Parents did a Good Job teaching You, as You're still a Good Worker and Provider, and I'm Glad we are Blood now.ReplyDelete
Thanks for that! every week I'd take that baby up to the Genesee bank at Dort and Atherton with that week's paper route profits!ReplyDelete
