Here are some shots from what was once a bank. If anyone can tell me what the symbols in the square mean I would appreciate it.

Welcome to our group.

Odd collection of words. Doesn't match anything I'm familiar with.

The creeping ivy certainly gives the impression of the inexorable progress of time and the elements. Dilapidation and gracefullness are well represented.

I like a challenge, so I did a little research and found this. I like the picture BTW.

Good research Steve. That is indeed the building it came from!

The picture shown on that website might have even worked for the "More Bars" challenge.

Very interesting pair of photos. I was somehow trying to read the word "truth" into that logo but I am probably not even close.

I can see how you would do that Cal. I may have to investigate this local history a bit further....

Steve,

Great research. Adds even more mystique to the building with this cloak of similarity to Balmoral Castle.

Interesting. I'll have to investigate this also. I have a relative who was from there about that time and his heritage was supposedly Scottish before Ireland.
