The old Rochester Savings Bank building, formally located on the corner of Fitzhught and West Main Street, in Downtown Rochester, NY. 

Circa 1904. 

Originally built in 1857 as a 3-story building, the addition of the top floor, lanterns, clocks and griffin gargoyles were completed by 1887. A year later, the top story would serve as the first Rochester Chamber of Commerce headquarters until 1895 (when the C of C moved to the Keeler-Kimball Estate building).

The building was razed in 1955 and replaced by the current Monroe Building (Rochester office of Stewart Title). The clocks read 10:36am.
