Bank on Delta Avenue

I am getting more adept at using the MDAH database at last, which may save a lot of time!  This is the old Bank of Clarksdale, estimated date 1901, Neoclassical design.  That would make it the older of the other old Bank of Clarksdale, circa 1930.  That’s it for the information.  It is currently being used as a travel agency/blues store.  The database indicates there was a Planters Bank building, circa 1895, on the corner.  That Art Moderne/Art Deco building was demolished in 1953.  I’ll keep an eye for any photos of it that might be lingering around.

Update 4-22-12: Thanks to Debbie for the update on the building; it is no longer being used as a travel agency or blues source due to the passing of the owner.
