YOU CAN BANK ON IT...
The bank you're looking at is one that I re-acquired around 17 years
ago to replace one I'd had as a child. What makes it more significant to me
is that I bought it from a pal who lived a couple of rows behind the row of
houses I lived in when I first had my own bank. Just think - as my bank sat
on my windowsill in my room, hissat on his windowsill in his room - with
only a row of houses between them in the same street.
I always find it strange how familiar re-acquired replacements of
things I haven't had for a long time seem, as if I only had them yesterday
instead of the several decades it sometimes actually is. As I've said before,
it's almost as if I put them in a cupboard the day before, and then opened the
cupboard door the next day, to find them waiting where I'd put them. It just
doesn't seem possible that it's sometimes been 30 or 40 years since I
last laid eyes or hands on them.
If you had this type of bank when you were a sproglet, you'll surely
enjoy seeing it again. And, even if you didn't have it, either way, it'll give
you an idea which collectable to look out for the next time you're at a toy
or memorabilia fayre. No, don't thank me - I'm all heart.
