Scandinavian American Bank Building information
The second-empire-baroque-style Scandinavian American Bank Building is a nice example of the early-1900s tendency to flatter by imitation: its concrete surface is treated to look like stone. You can still see the ‘Bank Building’ sign embedded in the top corner of this building. It became the Starlight Hotel and now holds the headquarters of the Ballard Farmers Market .
