DescriptionImage of the First National Bank in Peoria, IL. It is a stone building with a decorative, carved facade, Corinthian columns flanking large windows over the front door. The door has a pediment of ornate carved scrollwork and what looks like a cornucopia motif. Over the large windows "The First National Bank- The Savings Bank of Peoria" is carved into the stone blocks. On the sidewalk in front of the bank is a decorative street lamp, and a few women are walking around. A bike leans against the bank building, and another person is riding a bike on the street. The buildings on both sides of the bank are shops and offices with several floors, and an automobile is parked on the curb with the top down. NOTE: The slide is missing some areas due to peeling, and black specks cover the whole image.
