The days of building and loans


Recommended Posts

That must have been a nice time. No real money but wanting a cottage for you and your sweetie, you walk into the Bailey Bros. Building and Loan.

They loaned money in draws knowing that you were acquiring equity and wealth with each step.

Then banks came and ruined everything.

I was working in the coal mines of West Virginia during this time. We had no running water and were forced to eat bacon 4 times a day.


...I grew up on beans, greens, and fatback, while making the trip to California in a Conestoga wagon.  We were happy with it, back then, because Donner Party.
