Photo Caption:
Photo of Bank of Tehachapi, on the alley. Shown on Christmas day in 1936. Early western movies were made in town and bank scenes were filmed inside the bank.
Inscription.  The first bank in Tehachapi was incorporated on October 11, 1892, in a dry goods store on "G" Street (now Tehachapi Boulevard). The founder and first President of the Bank of Tehachapi was Isadore Asher, who operated the bank in the rear of this store. The bank relocated to a brick building on this site in 1906. After the building was destroyed in the 1952 earthquake, the current building on the site housed the Farrar Insurance Agency.
