The old Fair Oaks/Mission Security Pacific Bank building (and future Comerica Bank building) continues to be drilled, sanded and chiseled. Yesterday I watched the construction team pry off stone to reveal what I assume is the original brick exterior.

I’m kind of sad they took off the wonderful rosettes.

I’ll research the history and find some photos of this place. Just how many facades there have been? (If they start removing the bricks, we’ll stage an intervention…)
