Building Notes

In 1926, this building was known as the "American Bank Building." In that year, the Polyclinic, which was staffed by H.J. Davidson, C.F. Davidson, C.L. Templeton, Kenneth J. Holtz, Homer Wheelon, and Earle F. Ristine, performed diagnosis, therapy and surgery on the fifth floor of the American Bank Building. (See Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1926, p. 1198.)

It was also commonly referred to as the "Empire Building."


The American Bank Building was torn down in the 1980s.
