Syracuse Savings Bank Building

The Syracuse Savings Bank Building was built in 1875. Two canals, the Erie and the Oswego, met near a corner of the building.
Appropriately, another name for High Victorian Gothic style is Venetian Gothic although Syracuse does not resemble Venice except perhaps at that moment in history, at that corner.
I get much of my information about historical Syracuse architecture from Evamaria Hardin's Syracuse Landmarks, first edition 1993, for which I am very grateful.
