First National Bank Building

Daniel Burnham & Co.
1914




The river side

This sixteen-story skyscraper has the traditional tripartite structure, with a decorated base, plain shaft, and three-story top, complete with carved urns and cornice. (See Index for similar examples of Burnham's work.) The Post-Modern building to the right is the 100 East Building (1989) by Clark, Tribble, Harris, and Li of Charlotte, North Carolina.
 

The city side

This bank was renamed Firstar and its offices were moved to the Firstar Center (by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) in the 1970's.
