Commerce Bank Building, Peoria, Illinois

It seems that every major city in America had that one distinctive skyscraper back in the day. Peoria's is definitely the Commerce Bank Building, built in 1920 and designed by the firm Hewitt & Emerson.

Next door is an additional tower, designed in the Modernist style of architecture and linked by a one store connecting structure to the older building.
