MAKES A BUSINESS OF BICYCLING
Thousands of Seaside's annual vacationists ride
rented bicycles enthusiastically as a beach pas
time. Energetic Gordon Shaw in 1933 foresaw
this popularity-; decided to serve the public's
fancy. He quit law school and started his South
Prom Bike Shop near the Lewis and Clark turn
around. Business grew slowly, but today Shaw
must hire assistants to help meet demands for
bikes, tandems, tricycles and baby strollers. Shaw,
active Seaside Chamber of Commerce official,
also finds time to operate his large "Prom" apart
ment building. He's a long-time customer of
First National's Seaside affiliate, the Clatsop
In 1930, Vearl and Elsie Lehrman
of Bend began making novelties
from Central Oregon's juniper trees.
With a gift lathe, powered by their
washing machine motor, Lehrman
turned out colorfully-grained items
of his own design. Today their
Western Juniper Novelty Co. is in
a new building, with living quarters,
modern shop and display room.
They have mastered the individual
istic wood, learned the public's sou
venir tastes and developed far-flung
sales outlets. "Ours is a product
typical of Oregon which First
National helped us devel
op, Lehrman says.
In all parts of Oregon people are working to better themselves -
and in the process keep our state growing. We introduce some of
them here. In each case they've made effective use of the constructive
services of our First National Group banking offices. We believe
that by helping individuals toward prosperity, we help build Oregon
family by family, farm by farm, business by business. Whether your
financial needs are large or small, come in and talk over your situation
with us. "Let's Build Oregon Together."
