Located on the corner of East Colorado Boulevard and South Raymond Avenue, this three-story bank building had a Colorado Boulevard facade with three bays separated by four projecting support columns; Spandrel panels under paired double-hung windows on the second and third floors were molded terra cotta, each bearing a geometric, Art Deco motif. An Art Deco band of ornament highlighted the parapet. Just below the decorated parapet, three paired sections bore a checkerboard pattern. The first floor, where banking was transacted, had high ceilings. The front door was located centrally, and had stout metal framing, as did the large steel sash windows on either side. In 1938, a market stood next door.
