Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night
Beautiful photo, but I can’t place it….
It’s on the building next to Father and Sons that had that awful facade taken off. Where Ashley Christensen’s new restaurant will be.
So there was a bank there? What bank? What’s the street address?
The building was built on the SW corner of Hargett and Salisbury Streets in 1907. Brown Funeral Home (now Brown-Wynne) occupied the space until 1927. Then a series of banks followed: 1929-35, Mechanics Savings Bank; 1937-53, Raleigh Industrial Bank; 1954-56, Bank of Raleigh; 1957-59, First National Bank; 1960, American Commercial Bank; 1961-64, North Carolina National Bank; then in 1965, Fidelity Bank, which occupied the building for the next 30+ years. 200 S. Salisbury St.
Additional acid washing today removed more of the oxidation on there. It really shines now.
Don’t know if that’s good or bad.
