This building was built in 1965 as a branch of the long time defunct Western Savings and Loan. It now houses a branch of the Bank of America. The panels on either side reflect the optimism of a booming economy through agriculture and industry. The architect was Ralph Wyatt and sculptor was Frank Martin an associate of Wyatt’s.
Up until just weeks ago, this building was a stark white. I took many photos of it before but, all that white and the brilliant Arizona sun made it difficult to get a photo that depicts those sculptures. I’m not sure I like the new color but, it was easier to photograph this way.
