Those of you who follow Greensboro Daily Photo know that we're following the progress of the First Citizens Bank building (here). This soon-to-be Irving Park Bank has been under construction for over a year. When we first started watching the progress, we weren't even sure what side of the building would have the main entrance, Huntington Road or Northwood Street. As it turns out, the entrance is on Northwood, facing Anton's Restaurant and Baskins Robins. At one time, a reader suggested that the top might be a bell or clock tower. As seen above, neither is the case.
First Citizens will be a four-story, full-service branch off of Battleground- 30,900 square feet of banking services. Lately, we've been in Facebook mode where people post photos of oldies and ask you if you remember. Well, this photo reminds of of the tv show Green Acres. Imagine Lisa going into the bank to return her jewels to the safety deposit box while Oliver waited outside for her, in his suit, on a tractor. Do you remember?
