Onassis Modern, Macon

I stumbled across this Onassis Modern bank building in downtown Macon earlier this month, and thought it makes for a great contrast between the late 19th century streetscape and the newer building, probably built in the 1960's.Obviously, demolition of two story storefronts occurred for the building of this bank, leaving an oddly incongruous one story corner.Here is a detail of the stone work on the front. I suspect this bank may have been the replacement for the older, august building across the street featured yesterday.
