The Rochester Warner Family Legacy Day 5

The Rochester Savings Bank is still a bank, but, now it is Citizens Bank and only the main floor is the top floors are now owned By RIT the local tech school.  This big block of a triangular building is imposing and seems to be rooted in place.

But, that is exactly what was aimed for when being designed.  Some buildings are tall and slender and reach for the sky and others spread out or flamboyant.  This building however is solid.  What you want in a financial institution. 

In trying to depict this building as it once looked when originally built I had a hard time finding good photos to go by.  I had to go by a sketch done of it at the time to get the original entrance.

Not too much to go on but enough to make an educated guess.  This building is wedged behind the current
Sibleys building and now faces the Liberty pole.  I took the photo of the building to get the angle the same as the sketch.  You can see right away why it was just a bit of a stretch to recreate the original entrance.
