Wells Fargo in Philadelphia

Thursday November 17, 2011, Well Fargo opens our 12th History Museum. It’s in Philadelphia (with a bit of history of its own!)

Incidentally, you’re not seeing double. We did blog only a few weeks back about our 11th Museum, in Charlotte. Yup, two Museums within a month—everybody around here is pretty winded…

Anyway, here are some images of the new Museum in Philadelphia, and some historical images from the Wells Fargo Messenger in 1916. That article was boasting about our new Express offices in the City of Brotherly Love, too. History repeats, and we’re thrilled.
