Farmers and Merchants Bank, 1920s


Farmers and Merchants Bank, 1920s


This photo is believed to show the Farmers and Merchants Bank, corner of Broadway and Railroad Avenue, circa early 1920s.
Many businesses occupied this corner over the years, but this bank may have been the first tenant after construction was completed by S.B. Poston.
In February of 1913, the Georgetown Times said this:
"The corner of the block is occupied by the Farmers and Merchants (branch) Bank, the parent of which is at Lake City. The officers of the bank are J. S. McClam, president; S. B. Poston, vice-President; and C. J. Rollins, cashier of the Johnsonville Branch. The branch is two years old, and has prospered every day of its life. Its equipment is modern and complete."
If you can identify the 3 men pictured, please post in the comments. S. B. Poston is not one of the men pictured.
