Dr. Charles DiComo will present:

Banking in the Village of Pawling, NY and Surrounding Townships as told through Postal History, Bank Checks, Currency, Revenue Stamps, and Postal Cards: 1849–1929.
For a decade he lived in Pawling, Dutchess County, NY, 65 miles north of NYC. Here he began researching the history of the village, town, hamlets and neighborhoods. He collected its postal history, real photo postcards, postal cards, postal stationery, Victorian trade cards, railroad tickets, newspapers, hotel paraphernalia, etc. A sub-collection grew from this to include Bank Checks, Promissory Notes, Bank Tags, Fractional & Federal Currency, and other Ephemera.
Last year, he published an article in Paper Money on a portion of this story, The Life of Hiram Vail and the Obsolete Notes produced for his Banking & Collection Office in Amenia, New York. Paper Money, MayJune, 2019, Vol. LVIII, No. 3, Whole No. 321, pp. 190-194. He will be sharing many items from this
collection with us.
