With the news that the old First National Bank is to come down, I thought this photo was timely. Most of us think of the four columned bank when we picture the First National. But this building preceded it in 1887 and has resided next to the more familiar columned version ever since its 1916 debut.
Notice the second floor office of J.M. Pleasants, attorney. He was the brother of yesterday's subject, Ellen Lee Pleasants Banta.
