For most of our country's history, banks have built buildings that were meant to convey a sense of stability and permanence. Those little Cape Cod houses and low-slung modern boxes are both relatively recent phenomena; in the 19th and early 20th centuries, a local bank would most likely be an imposing stone structure, probably borrowing elements from Greek temples. We found one such building in our travels recently, a handsome stone structure with a mix of Greek and Victorian decorative elements. This, which we assume are the bank's initials, is one of them. Where did we find it? (Maybe a history buff can also tell us what the initials stood for.)
