Traders Bank Pencil Case

Traders Bank Pencil Case
A Pencil or Needle Case labelled “Traders Bank”. This item was discovered next to a human skeleton at MacDougall’s Creek (now Matheson, Ontario) by James Richardson and a companion while on their way to the Bronson Lumber Camp in the 1890’s; not much else is known about the skeleton. The Traders Bank was one of the earliest rivals to the Royal Bank, devoting its attention to small-town Ontario. In 1912 the Traders Bank’s 104 branches dwarfed the Royal Bank’s 39; but later that year the Traders Bank began to decline and by September had merged with the Royal Bank of Canada.
