1963 Lorain County Savings & Trust Christmas Club Ad

Here's one last Lorain Journal Christmas-themed ad from December 1963. This one is for the Lorain County Savings & Trust Company. (Seeing as this blog is supposed to cover all of Lorain County, it seemed only right to include this ad.)

Nowadays you don't see very many ads for Christmas Clubs. (By the way, I did end up raiding this year's Christmas Club stash to catch up on next year's!)

Anyway, since I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to Elyria and its businesses, I had to do a little online research to find out what eventually happened to this bank. It appears that it is now part of FirstMerit Bank

Research also revealed that Lorain County Savings & Trust Company had one of the first office towers in Elyria for many years. To see a postcard of it and other Elyria landmarks, click here to visit a great local website, Classic Elyria Postcards.
