National Credit – To facilitate the repair of damage caused by the war.

The national credit was a French bank created by special law on October 10, 1919  at the nexus of the private sphere and the sphere of influence of the French State involved in the payment of war reparations and financing of small and medium enterprises. It has always been in the private sector and its employees have never had the status of civil servants, despite employment contracts and organization benefitting the public. – Wikipedia (FR)

The BFCE (French Foreign Trade Bank) founded Natixis in the spirit of privatization with a merger in 2006 of Natexis and Ixis. Apparently I caught this sign after the Natixis sign was taken down.  May 2008 © Google Maps

I’m learning from you to snap these signs during their potentially brief time of exposure. Crews recently tore down a row of small businesses along Queens Boulevard between 71st Road and 71st Drive. They exposed the blue ad on the bottom of the photograph. Looks like there’s something beneath it, too, but I couldn’t see it from the street. - Nick Hirshon

Abacus Federal Savings Bank (國寶銀行) is a Chinese American bank in the United States founded in December, 1984 by a group of business leaders from the Chinese community in New York City. The founders’ original purpose was to provide banking services to immigrants and local residents of lower Manhattan. As the Chinese immigrant population grew in the 1980s and 1990s, the Bank retained its original mission, but expanded its size and scope. It now has 6 branches covering New York , New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Besides the traditional banking services, it also offers insurance and securities through its subsidiaries. Abacus is federally chartered. Its mortgage and other services extend to all states in the United States.Wikipedia
