    I suggest you send this to Andy C Hornby ex CEO of HBOS to familiarise him with concept of " Saving money in a bank":rolleyes: :mad:

    Barrow boys!

    Didn't mean to rain on your parade mate but I have one of these "mini savings banks" myself and I am struck by the irony that such institutions have been brought low by a bunch of money grabbing " barrow boys" with hardly a banking qualification between them. A far cry from the philanthropists who set these institutions up in the first place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trustee_savings_banks

    p.s. this is no reflection on your item for sale which is an interesting and collectable memento of times when financial institutions could be trusted with your money.

    quote from the above wiki page

    '...becoming in 1992 a single entity called TSB Bank,....'

    It has always made me wonder why they decided to call it the Trustee Savings Bank Bank. :crazy:
