The decorative castle-like building, completed in 1893, served as the headquarters for the Erie County Savings Bank. Designed by architect George B. Post, known for his work on the Buffalo Statler Towers, the building showcased pink granite sourced from Jonesboro, Maine, with ashlar masonry walls backed by brick. Despite its load-bearing exterior walls, the building incorporated an interior steel framing system. It had a unique triangular shape.
In 1968, as part of an urban renewal project, the building was demolished along with several adjacent structures, making room for the Main Place Tower. However, the lion statues that adorned the main entrance pillars of the original building and various granite architectural remnants were preserved. These artifacts can now be found on the Buffalo State College campus.
As described, seller communication was prompt and delivery was quicker than anticipated!
Judy took this picture and added 5 more around it to create a beautiful collage of my home city of Buffalo, NY. I am so in love with it and with Judy! She worked hard to make sure she understood exactly what I wanted. She showed me different layouts of her own ideas and NY requests. Her communication was fantastic! She responded quickly and updated me through to it the process. Her prices are on point, the picture came quickly and in perfect condition. I will definitely be ordering from her again. Thanks Judy!
