Cowboy Dick Kinsler, 10, perches on the base of an old elm tree. The tree was in front of the Florence Bank, and is believed to have been planted by the first cashier, J.D. Brisbin when the bank opened in 1956. It was 6 foot at the base. It was ordered to be razed in 1946 because the city forester pronounced it dangerous.
