The bank that grew with Stockton

Here’s a postcard showing the Bank of Italy’s location in Stockton. It’s the building flying the American flag across Hunter Square from the courthouse.

The Bank moved into the former Commercial and Savings Bank building in 1926. And changed its name to the Bank of America in 1930.

The last one is of the Bank of America in the distance of a 1950s Stockton streetscape. Note the big neon BANK OF AMERICA sign.

Note also what a vibrant downtown it was. Undoubtedly Bank of America provided some of the financial lifeblood.
