Old bank gates

0608 bank gate faces (large)

I walked past these gate medallions on a 19th century bank building today - it's not the Commercial Banking Company (which is long-subsumed into another bank) but the building with its iron lace balcony does still house a bank branch.

I'm intrigued by the fact that they're different faces - was there more than one goddess of banking and money, or did the sculptor just feel like a change?

One of the great advantages of a photoblog is the way it makes you open your eyes and pay attention. I'm glad I noticed these.
