This lobby was originally built as a bank lobby in 1906. This was magnificently rich and appropriate space for a bank lobby. The library consists of five floors, the lobby houses popular reading materials.
After a buy out of the bank I worked for in New Mexico, I was brought to KC and worked for this bank. Not in this particular building but I visited this building many times as it housed the administrative offices of the bank. After many buyouts my department was downsized and I have found my way elsewhere. I remember special evening events held on these marble floors.
