Bank in Telluride

This photo may have been an advertisement to show customers how safe it was to leave their money in the Bank of Telluride. Stacks of silver dollars are lined up on the counter on the right. Next to the rolls of coins are two pistols. During the Great Depression of the 1930s, many people lost faith in banks because so many failed or closed.
