A Warning From The Windsor Trust

The Windsor Trust Company was organized in 1913 and opened for business in a brick building at the junction of Broad Street and Poquonock Avenue in February, 1914. The bank moved to a new building at 270 Broad Street, between Maple Avenue and Elm Street, on September 15, 1929, about a month before the stock market collapsed, the forerunner of the Great Depression.
In this advertisement from 1944, the Windsor Trust warns people who receive government checks in the mail to take several steps in order to protect their checks from “crooks.”


Would your mail carrier in 2018 “signal you” when he or she delivers mail to you from “the Government”?
