Fixtures for the First National Bank

The Apalachicola Times reported the following in its October 10, 1908, edition:

MARSHALL & CO., are making fixtures for the First National Bank, of DeFuniak, consisting of counters, railings and cypress paneled petitions for three rooms, making altogether very handsome fittings.

Historian Mark Curenton of Apalachicola, who contributed the newspaper item, provided additional information about John Marshall & Co.: “They were a large local woodworking company that did a lot of finish work.” Unfortunately, that bank building, which was at the corner of 7th Street and Baldwin Avenue, burned down and was replaced by a brick building. The master mechanism of the McClintock clock survived, but it is not known if anything else did.
