The Fourth National Bank Building was once the centerpiece of the corner of Third and Jefferson Streets in downtown Dayton.
An archway made of stone welcomed patrons to the four-story brick building. The windows along the top floor mimic the first floor curve.
The building is featured in today's update to the popular Then & Now photo series, which displays past and present images of some of Dayton's most notable locations.
Horses pulling wagons and buggies are tied along the curb, and a few automobiles are scattered along the street.
Part way down Jefferson Street, two men converse on the stoop outside the Gately and Brennan office.
Past them, looking north on Jefferson Street, signs for businesses, The Groneweg Printing Co., Brooks Heating and the Stern Hat Co. are painted on the sides of the buildings.
Today the corner is a collection of buildings home to popular clubs and bars and adjacent to the Fire Blocks District.
