Nepotism!

I will bet one of the “models” is the bank president’s wife. The other is his single sister.

Orbit City Savings & Loan

I'm pretty sure George and Jane Jetson did their banking here.

JFK Jr.

It looks like a mini TWA terminal.

Still there, in apparent good shape

Drive-In Entrance seems quiet.

Before S&L Deregulation

This photo brings back many memories -- dipping our toe into that futuristic architectural style; the little passbooks where each deposit and withdrawal was recorded in ink … and if you asked, the teller would record your accrued interest to bring your balance current. I wouldn't be surprised if the women in bathing suits were Savings & Loan employees and told this was part of their job. The observing men dressed so nice. And across the street the Standard gas station where you would pull up to a pump and while you sat in your car a man would not only dispense the desired amount of gas but also clean your front and back windshields and check your oil level and tire pressure.

Thanks to 'captivated' for providing a street address. I wonder in what year the handicap ramp was added to the front walk?

Now vacant

Still exists at 77 South Main.
