Bank "Guarantees" Pigeon Housing

September 24, 2019

The "Back When" column in Arizona Contractor & Community Magazine is a rare photo that captures bank executives performing manual labor under a teenager's guidance. This event occurred in 1963 when Guaranty Bank prepared to open a new branch in Sunnyslope. The kid asked the bank to move a shack on the property to his house, so he could use it as a pigeon coop.
