wise animals in the woods


28 August 1961, United Kingdom
‘Growth of Savings’ – centenary of Post Office Savings Bank
design: M. Goaman

A squirrel, a bird on a nest and an owl – they are representing modest and wise home management, such as saving money at the Post Office Savings Bank.

This squirrel looks like a Red Squirrel, the native kind before the Grey Squirrel came to dominate most of Britain.  They occasionally take a long sleep when the weather is very cold, but normally not going into hibernation for long.
