Bank Run



We start you off this Monday Morning with a good old fashioned Bank Run. This picture was taken at the start of the Great Depression. The picture shows the run on the American Union Bank in New York City. Bank Runs remain a common site, and presently Greece and Venezuela are front and center, but you never know who might be next.

  1. For a short time, I worked for a Savings and Loan in Baltimore. I knew that many, many of the things they were doing were illegal and just decided to "get out before the cops arrived". Lines such as this were a common sight in the newspaper when that house of cards collapsed.
