In June of 1860 in the Reading Room of the bank was exhibited a large canvas of the Old Fort. Also in 1862 a picture of Fort Hill was exhibited in the reading room under the bank.
About picture of Old Fort hanging in the Gloucester Bank: "This picture is chiefly of interest on account of its preserving so accurately the features of a view so familiar to many of our citizens and which can never exist in reality."
