Alma Exchange Bank & Trust
Alma, GA
This Alma Exchange Bank & Trust drive-thru branch was built in 1966. This location features giant parabolic curves and a tall freestanding sign tower. An identical bank was built in Sylvestor, GA afterwards. That building has been demolished. There is an identical sign in Albany, GA so there must have been a third location there. That building is also gone. The Alma building is now endangered since the bank would like to build something with more space. [map]

former Trust Company Bank
Atlanta, GA
The former Trust Company Bank was built in 1965. The building was designed by Henri Jova. It sat vacant for many years before opening as Piebar, a hip pizza restaurant, in 2005. After that, the building housed the Eros World Tapas Bar and the Ixtlan Ultra Lounge after that. Since 2014, the building has housed the Cirque Daiquiri Bar and Grill. In 2016, there was talk of demolishing the building for a self-storage facility. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3 [scan thanks Robby Delius]. [map]

Tucker Federal (now RBC Centura Bank)
Doraville, GA

ca. 1987:

2007:
This Tucker Federal Bank appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. The building housed a RBC Centura Bank in 2007. Since around 2012, the building has housed a PNC Bank. Does anyone know when it was built and what bank originally occupied the building? [ca. 1987 photos thanks Eavenson Art] [map]

BB&T Bank
Adel, GA
I believe this BB&T Bank was built in the early 1960s. It probably had another name originally. [map]
