A few nice business banking images I found:


The Bank of LaCrosse 1

Thank you for all views and comments. They are much appreciated.

Somewhere I’ve read that banks employed Classical detailing in the façade to impart the sense of stability and permanence. The Bank of LaCrosse (Mecklenburg County, Virginia) is no exception, a small town bank exhibiting the Classical features that seemed standard for early banks. I have no date for the structure but guess before 1925; I also don’t know the building material. The façade is framed by four pilasters instead of columns, one at each corner and the remaining two on either side of the entrance. The stylized capitals are elongated and grooved. Above the overhang are recessed panels, functioning as extensions of the pilasters. The overhang has prominent rectangular brackets which resemble large dentil. Below that at each corner is a circular floral design and the name of the bank. A broken pediment is above the entrance with an urn (in funerary sculpture it symbolized immortality, hence permanence of the institution). There's an ornamental swag pattern in the panel between the two large brackets, which support the pediment, and below each bracket are long narrow vertical panels. The doorway itself consists of narrow grooves. The windows are fixed and are enclosed within a large panel between the pilasters in a set pattern (except for the window above the entrance): the second-story windows are arched and have recessed areas, simulating a surround with a bracket form as the keystone; the first story windows are to either side of the entrance; between the stories is a recessed ornamented rectangular panel and below the first-story windows the panel is raised instead of recessed.
