The bank building, National Register of Historic Places no. 1990001432, was designed by Los Angeles architects Robert F. Train and Robert E. Williams in 1906. The clock tower with its six-foot-diameter clock face was added in 1907. The structure is in French Renaissance Revival style and utilizes pressed yellow brick on the street sides and common red brick on the remaining two sides.
The clock at the top of the California National Bank of Long Beach building shows 11:45 in this scene of Pine Avenue at the corner of 1st Street in Long Beach. A large Buffums' sign is atop a building to the left of the bank. Other businesses include drug stores, the Milano Restaurant, and a hotel. A taxi is parked in front of the bank and a streetcar is driving down the avenue.
