PROV-50D 2011 12 15 002736.JPG it is 8.30 p.m. and the door of the SAFE swings open come inside everyone look about you and see the sort of BANK we would like to own on the right behind the NOTE ISSUE DEPARTMENT (orcestra to you) is perhaps the most important feature of this most unusual banking chamber the DRAFT DEPARTMENT about half our DRAFTS are kept here these may be inspected and if you so desire partaken of from about the hour of 9 p.m. another branch of this department may be found almost behind those FINANCIAL MAGNATES you can all see at the far end of the chamber (just to the left of their BOARD ROOM) to the left again is the LIQUID ASSETS DEPARTMENT where the ladies negotiate their P/N's and these at any time before 10.30 p.m. please various other departments may be inspected at your leisure or when occasion arises now we've seen the layout of this novel institution let's see how the business is conducted and while you're waiting just try your fist with that OVERDRAFT APPLICATION FORM dont't let it get too soiled boys!!

a couple of hours later give them plenty of room please that's THE HIMINGS and none of you can dance like that!
