Today's post card shows the First National Bank building in Shreveport Louisiana which today would just be called an "office building". The bank probably designed, built and paid for the building and occupied the best office space location and then leased out the remainder of office space. The bank entrance is located on the corner on the street level and there is a drug store at the far right end of the building on the street level. Unfortunately, there is no signage to indicate any other occupants of the building. This is a circa 1912 Acmegraph Company postcard that was mailed from Shreveport in 1915. Acmegraph, which was in Chicago, is a lesser know publisher but, in my opinion, their postcards were high quality and the images used were excellent. This postcard can be found in my Louisiana listings along with 10,000 additional post cards on my website Moody's Postcards.
