Flyer's Bar and Grill
Cleveland, OH
Flyer's Bar and Grill occupies what appears to be former bank building. [map]

former AmTrust Bank
Cleveland, OH
This AmTrust Bank is in the same supermarket parking lot as Flyers Bar & Grill described above. This bank was probably built a little later. These photos are from 2009. By 2013, this was an Ohio Savings Bank. [map]

former bank
Elyria, OH
This former bank was built in 1961. The buiding housed Lilly's Styling Salon when these photos were taken in 2011. That business has closed and the building was vacant in 2014. The building was still vacant in 2016. [map]

former Firestone Bank
Akron, OH
This former Firestone Bank was designed by W.A. Sarmiento and built in 1958. The bank closed in 1982. In 2000, the building was donated to the city. The building was finally renovated in 2009 and houses a PlusOne call center. It is now named the Verge Building. [map]

Progressive Insurance
Parma, OH
This Progressive Insurance office appears to occupy a former mid-century modern bank. [map]

Chase Bank
Reynoldsburg, OH
This Chase Bank, aka the "round bank", opened in 1960 as the Reynoldsburg Bank. It was designed by Taylor & Liebersbach. The bank became City National Bank in 1963. Later, it was a Bank One before being taken over by Chase in 2004. The building features a parabolic roof. The drive-thru canopy was added by Chase. [map]

Chase Bank
Columbus, OH
Columbus Finance
Columbus, OH
This Chase Bank is just north of the Eastland Mall. The square building has two projecting "legs" on each side and a zig-zag drive-thru canopy on the fourth side. I'm guess that it's from the late 1960s or early 1970s. The ugly siding was probably a later addition. [map]

Columbus Finance was established in 1960. This building appears to be from then. This photo is from 2010. By 2014, a green awning had been installed over the canopy. [map]
