DescriptionThe slide reads: "1st Natl Bk Bldg (Peoria Life Bldg), 1919, 1980/38/52." The photograph shows the First National Bank Building at the corner of Main and Jefferson Streets in Peoria, Illinois as seen from the Citizen's Building. There is a sign on the front of the building for S & C Drugs. There was a drug store with a small lunch counter located in a corner of the ground floor of the bank into the 1970's. Across Jefferson Street from the bank is the Peoria County Courthouse. To the right of the bank is First Federal Savings and the larger structure is the Savings Center Tower. Behind the bank and across Madison Street is the Madison Theater as indicated by the red sign on the front of the building. Beyond that more buildings can be seen. There are a few cars parked on the side of the streets around the bank and other buildings. The light brick building on the left side of the picture is now the South Side Trust and Savings Bank.
