10 thoughts on “First National Bank, 1919

  1. Wonderful early image of the bank designed by A.E. Doyle, before the addition at the rear to the east. Having toured Italy for design inspiration, Doyle was especially fond of the Greco-Roman classicism.

  2. In the 1930 view, it’s just the corner building. In a 1960 image, they’re building an addition on the back, but in today’s street view, there’s a separate building, not an addition in that space. Did the addition only last 20 years or so?

  3. Neo classicism at its best wow what a beautiful solid marble building that is its not hollow wall slabs over a metal frame its solid and very heavy strong stone !!
