Shorpy Saturday – Central Savings: 1905

By Jeffrey Buck

If you have ever taken a drive down some of the busiest streets in the “D” then you must have noticed by now that the buildings that once housed banks have taken on a new life.  I’ve seen things from pawn shops to Chinese take-outs to night clubs. The Central Savings Bank is somewhere along Grand River, it may have been demolished or it may still be standing. What’s you favorite re-purpose of an old bank?

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Central Savings: 1905“:
