Unbuilt. Architect A. Page Brown submitted his competition entry for the Hibernia Bank to be published in the American Architect and Building News, 02/07/1891, (issue #739). Brown indicated on the drawing that it was "a competitive design," and that his studio had offices in New York and San Francisco at the time. His design resembled Georgian and Neo-classical Colonial buildings, particularly its engaged columns, balustrades, fenestration trimmed by coursed ashlar masonry and its cupola. The front door was a clever usage of the Palladian window motif.
