The Greenes took part in a Bank Competition for an unspecified
location in 1906 for which they prepared only conceptual sketches.
This project was sited on the short side of a trapezoidal block, resulting
in an irregular footprint. There are several variations of layout in the
plan. Some of the sketch plans clearly show the site divided into a bank
with a vault, safe deposit area, and a large room for tellers. Others
show the space sub-divided into separate stores. Whether these latter
drawings record an option or variation of the existing conditions is
difficult to say. The exterior perspective sketch shows many Romanesque
details: a large Richardsonian arch at street level, small round tower
with a turret, a bell, and a clock at the corner, and a castellated
parapet. The strong emphasis on the horizontal line of the facade as well
as the suggestion of brick and castellated details give the bank the
appropriate look of a stronghold.
