  • Your post brought back memories! My late father was a businessman (successful in the early years but found it difficult to move with the times, especially technology). The bank statement came weekly in those days and a quick glance indicated the state of his finances – almost always typed, but sometimes additional entries, like a cheque payment or withdrawal was handwritten – red if overdrawn and black if business was good that particular week. They even used a red/black biro if it was handwritten!
