former Financial
Federal Bank & Loan Association
Miami Beach, FL
The first former Financial Federal Bank & Loan Association shown above was designed by Edwin Reeder and built in 1952. In 1966, this 55-foot-tall "tripod spire" was designed by Herbert Mathes and added. It supported a sign with a digital panel which displayed the time and date. For more, see this website. [map]

The second former Financial Federal Bank & Loan Association shown above was also designed by Edwin Reeder was built in 1957. The facade has been significantly altered. I assume that this "tripod spire" was also added in the 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]
