We are on a road trip up the West Coast and spent several days in one of our favorite places, Bend, Oregon.

I tried to track down the original building that housed The Lumbermens National Bank of Bend.  Several people in town directed me to this building (now housing a Wells Fargo branch). This building dates back to 1915 and has the original vault. The tellers and assist. Manager were very friendly and perhaps a bit curious that someone from out of town would be so interested in the bank.

It is nice to pair these pictures (and a personal visit) with the note in my collection.

Great story and pics, thanks.  One of those banks where most of the early low S/Ns of all denominations, both Types, were saved in CU.

If you are there on a walkie talkie and they ask your 20, do you have to say Bend, over?

I was born in North Bend, OR.  Which, oddly, is not North of Bend, OR.  My father was born in South Bend, WA, which is North of both Bend and North Bend.

I heard he was in a bit of a rut lately. Hope things are looking up for your doctor.
