1247. Bank of the Future














Dear Allison,

The State Capitol Bank in Oklahoma City is a reamrkable
example of Googie Mid-Century architecture in the United
States. Although the bank president wanted a "bank of the
future" he also told the architect that he liked the bank to look
more like a cocktail lounge than a bank.
American architectural photographer Julius Shulman
celebrated the originality and ingenuity of this building
with one of his iconic and powerful images.

Regards,
R
