Quiz time

Let's see how smart y'all are, just for shots and grins.


Read this, and tell me what era it came from. It shouldn't be too hard, but that's all I'm saying at the moment.

#2 pencils only, no stabbing your neighbors with them:






Good luck, kiddies.

Sometime after 1940 because that is when National Builders Bank of Chicago changed its name to LaSalle National Bank.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaSalle_Bank

I'm gonna guess 1945-1950. Probably closer to 1950 from the context of the letter.

Too bad. You were closest, 1954.

It's an interesting read because it seems very similar to what's going on today. I found that in a file (where I was looking for the receipt for the brake work on the ranger), it was sent to my great-uncle Warren Peel, a big Chicago car dealer who moved down here, founded yet another Chevrolet dealership; and when my great-aunt May died of cancer in 1938, he went back to Chicago and left everything here, and sold the dealership off. He sent that to my other great aunt, who was friends with about 90% of the Dallas glitterati, including car dealers, lawyers, judges, and fashion magnates.

The originals:
