First Bank Of The United States Featured Print

First Bank Of The United States

Engraving by Fenner Sears & Co. shows pedestrians on the street outside the First Bank of the United States which was Alexander Hamilton's brainchild and forerunner of our current Federal Reserve Bank System, Walnut Street, Philadelphia, 1831. The building was completed in 1795 but in 1811 the Congress allowed the bank's charter to lapse. Stephen Girard bought the building, designed Blodgett and Windrim and believed to be the first Greek Revival bank in the country, to house his own banking interests. It is now a museum.

LCC-MFB Sydenham fire station, Crystal Palace

Built by the Metropolitan Board of Works (the forerunner of the London County Council) and opened in 1869, Sydenham fire station was located on Crystal Palace Parade in the shadow of the Crystal Palace. Originally built by Sir Joseph Paxton in London's Hyde Park for the 1851 Great Exhibition, the iron and glass Palace was relocated to Penge Common, Sydenham Hill and the area took on a new name --Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace can be seen behind the fire station, together with a motorised fire engine at the side. The station was closed in 1915
