Facts

  • The Farmers Deposit Bank was one of the largest and tallest buildings in Pittsburgh when completed. By the 1960's the building was fast becoming obsolete. The owners reskinned the entire Beaux-arts facade with a new modernist curtain wall. Nevertheless, an anchor tenant was never found for the building and it was torn down by the late 1990's. The site is now occupied by a low structure of about 3 stories.
  • The lower façade contained allegorical figures by sculptor J. Massey Rhind.
