Last week, we showed a lighting fixture attached to the exterior of a building, which more than two dozen readers correctly recognized as the home to the Red Bank branch of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney downtown on Broad Street.
In his Images of America book on Red Bank author Randall Gabrielan of Middletown has this to say about the white marble structure:
The Neoclassical bank building at 53 Broad Street, at its northeast corner with Wallace Street, was designed by New York architect Warrington G. Lawrence for the First National Bank. However, the new building was occupied by the Red Bank Trust company. They absorbed First National in May 1914 just as the building was completed. Red Bank Trust merged with Second National Bank.
