Physical Description

From City of Buffalo Intensive Level Historic Resources Survey of the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood: "Bley & Lyman also applied the Art Moderne style to another building in the Broadway-Fillmore commercial district, the Buffalo Industrial Bank (1941) at 690 Fillmore Avenue. This small one-story bank was the first-drive-in bank in the city. It was built as a one-part commercial block of brick with Mansota stone facing and bronze fixtures. The one-part block is a simple rectangular building often with an ornate facade. It is most often utilized for retail or office space, and was a popular commercial design in small cities and towns during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries."

Current Condition
