Building Notes

The Germain Lumber Company had its offices in the Citizens National Bank Building #2 in Los Angeles, in 1924. (See Los Angeles, City Directory, 1924, p. 1012.) Leo J. Germain served as its president at this time, with Edward Germain, its secretary.

The noted architect George Edwin Bergstrom (1876-1955) maintained an office in the Citizens Bank Building c. 1915-1921, at least.
