The Suburban Trust Bank opened a branch in the Whitehall Professional Centre on Route 197 across from Bowie Plaza in January, 1975, in the present day location of the Bank of America branch.

County Councilman Frank Francois (3rd from right) and Bowie Mayor Richard Padgett (2nd from right) were present for the ribbon cutting.

"Banking's More Fun at Suburban Trust" is printed on the balloons.

These kids are trying to figure out if banking is more fun at Suburban Trust. Bowie Plaza is visible in the background, including Peoples Drug store.
