TOP:View looking east on Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach, Calif. circa 1925. The FIrst National Bank Building (Enloe Building), with clock tower on far left, and the Security Building, behind clock tower and, the Breakers, right, are still standing.
BOTTOM: The First National Bank building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The original bank building had three stories, which were surpassed in 1906 with the current building. The clock tower with its six-foot-diameter clock face was added in 1907. The structure was designed in a French Renaissance Revival style utilizing pressed yellow brick on the street sides and common red brick on the remaining two sides.
