    In the more recent photo, the building seen on the left used to be the National Bank of Detroit. I worked there as a tour guide in the summer of ’65, while I was in college. We took people around to see the money museum on the mezzanine, the board room on the 5th floor, the vault in the basement, and the computer system which took up a WHOLE FLOOR. If I remember correctly our uniforms were navy blue wool skirts, white blouse, and royal blue wool blazers. It was a fun job, and I worked with some really nice people.
