This evening photograph of the American Trust Company’s 1011 Tenth Street branch was taken on March 3, 1951. The company established itself in Sacramento with a mere ten employees at the corner of Seventh and J Streets. By the time this photograph was taken, American Trust had grown to three branches – others in East Sacramento and North Sacramento – and 152 total employees. The California bank was founded in 1854 as the San Francisco Accumulating Fund Association.
