A slim 5 1/4" x 3 1/8" book with about 30 pages, hand-made paper with hand-cut pages. This is a 1906 publication by the Rochester Trust & Safe Deposit Co. The essays promote the services of the bank in a sentimental manner, as the title suggests. There are four small tipped-in photomechanical prints of the bank, the vault, conference room. 8 pages have lovely tipped-in gravure prints of photographs by Clarence White, with tissue guards that have text printed on them. Supposedly White agreed to supply the photographs on a visit to Rochester, but oddly he is not credited. A beautiful and now rare item that was distributed by the bank.
