Located at the Madison Street entrance of The First National Bank of Ottawa's main bank, one of Ottawa's historic murals tells of
The First National Bank of Ottawa during the depression.

Following the stock market crash of 1929, Americans panicked and rushed to their local banks to withdraw their money.  The result was that 5,755 banks closed between 1930 and 1932.
