Wallet Card at the South Shore Trust Company

The South Shore Trust Company was founded in 1929 in Rockville Centre, NY by George W. Loft. He was the son of William Loft, who started the Loft Candies store chain. I showed a recently-uncovered sign from that company in a wallet card post last year. The bank lasted for 21 years before being absorbed by Franklin Bank in 1950.
Before founding this bank George Loft served in the US House of Representatives from 1906 to 1917. He also was a real estate developer. His Loft Estate Homes development in Baldwin, NY still exists, with an interesting-looking sign of its own.
