The father-and-son, Los Angeles architectural firm, Parkinson and Parkinson, designed the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco's Los Angeles Branch in 1929. A later building was erected next door in the 1990s.

This stout, rectangular structure clad in limestone suggested solidity and security. It had the look of a WPA Moderne building before the Depression hit.
