Overview

The 1st Trust and Savings Bank incorporated on 03/12/1908. From at least 1912-1921, P.E. Bowles served as its president. In 1912, it was known as the "1st Trust and Savings Bank," but this had been shortened by 1921 to "1st Savings Bank." In 1921, it had this main location at San Pablo Avenue and 16th Street, supplemented by two branches, one in Berkeley (2033 Shattuck Avenue) and the other in West Oakland (7th Street and Henry Street).

Bowles was also the President of the First National Bank of Oakland in 1921, located at Broadway and San Pablo Avenue. (See Oakland, California, City Directory, 1921, p. 463.)
