U.S. National Bank Building in Downtown…..

I love architecture a lot, I love to go downtown and enjoy all the old buildings in the city. I did just that this morning when I went to g see the Rose Festival Fleet.

I took photos of the U.S. National Bank Building! Awesome beauty!

This was the 13th bank to open in Portland and it was incorporated on November 10, 1890. The architect for this building was A.E. Doyle who was the West Coast’s leading architect! The columns stand 54 feet high.

In the interior, marble came from Italy, Hungary and Belgium. The beautiful bronze doors were designed by Arvard Fairbanks who was a former professor of sculpture at the University of Oregon.

I wished that homes and building were still made today with such beauty and detail!
