View 1: Exterior view of Los Angeles National Bank at the northeast corner of First and Spring Streets, in downtown Los Angeles. Completed in 1887, it was designed by Kysor & Morgan in the "Modern Gothic" style, includes a basement and cost $65,000 to build. The building materials were granite, iron and pressed brick. The bank was organized in 1883 and later merged, along with Southwestern National Bank, with First National in 1905. The Equitable Savings Bank then occupied the premises and replaced the building with a seven-story structure.
