Temple of Thrift: 1916

Temple of Thrift: 1916

May 6, 1916. "Dime Savings Bank lobby, Detroit, Michigan." 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

The columns at the end changed too

They were Ionic, but now have Corinthian capitals

Wow!

A dime sure went a lot farther back then.

Very Elegant

I can hardly wait to see the drive-thru. Wonder which window has the lollipops.

Opulent

Doesn't look like dimes at all.

Not bad, just different

The lobby of Chrysler House / Dime Building looks a little different now. I imagine most of the change came when the main floor became retail space instead of banking. I'm surprised the columns along the side were squared off.
