Dauphin Deposit Bank Cages

The bank's interior was remodeled in 1927. During the Depression, money brought in from the Philadelphia Federal Reserve was stacked behind the bank cages to assure depositors. With healthy deposits and the McCormick family leadership, the bank successfully navigated through the Depression. Many bank officers even thought it was unnecessary for them to close during the 4-day bank holiday mandated by the 1933 Emergency Banking Act.
