Description

A black, metal lock box given to a customer by the Home Building & Loan Ass'n of Asheville, NC sometime between 1911 and the late 1920s.

The names of the president, F.R. Hewitt, and the Secretary and Treasurer, S. L. Forbes are on the box. The Association was incorporated on June 28, 1911. The president, Francis Richard Hewitt lived from 1854-1930. I was unable to find the exact dates of the tenure of Hewitt, so we can assume the item was produced somewhere between the date the association was incorporated, and the death of the president.

Item measures approximately 11.25" x 5-5/8" x 2.5".
There is some rust and wear on the outside of the box; the inside is clean. It has it's original key, which is a rarity for others similar to this.

Please view the photos and contact me if you have any questions.
