  • At the turn of the 20th century (1900) many company's made advertising pieces.

    Punch Cigars picked Punch from Punch and Judy puppets to make a bank. The little Punch is standing on a metal box, he's holding in his fist a hand full of cigars. In front of his feet, on the box, is a slot for the coins to be dropped in.

    To give this item more appeal to children, they placed wheels on the box and fixed a small link chain to the back of the box. Now children had a pull toy to play with and could pull it from room to room.

    On the front of this metal box, in raised letters, is the name Punch. Each side of the box, in raised letters, it says "Five Cent Cigars".

    This is truly a well done cast iron piece. The casting has very smooth edges and is in no way crudely done.

    Punch has big ears and a big nose, and this mischievous silly little grin on his face, and big happy brown eyes. Easy to see why children would have been attracted to this bank.

    When you light up a Punch cigar, you're not only smoking a bold expression of the cigar maker's art, you're smoking history, for Punch is a legendary cigar with a rich history in Cuba as well as in England. Above all, this is the cigar with the taste that's true to its name. PunchCigar1.jpg - 14095 Bytes

Member Chamber of Commerce

Olney, IL. Chamber of Commerce

D. Lawless Hardware is located in the small Midwestern town of Olney, Illinois. Surrounded North, East, South and West by Interstate highways, all an hour's drive away (that's 50-60 miles out here in the sticks for you city folks who drive an hour to work), I like to joke that we are "centrally located in the middle of nowhere". We like it here and we think you would too. Olney has great schools, a junior college, a hospital, 2 industrial parks, 3 recreational parks, a good-sized lake for fishing, boating, and an abundant water supply, a small local all-weather airport, and lots of fresh air and room to breath it. Like all small towns, we appreciate all our local industries, but are always actively seeking growth. So, if you or your company is considering new site locations, please check us out.
