“This is the old house that stood on the corner of Julia and Church Streets. They then built the Federal Reserve Bank Building. The  picture was taken from the Ambassador Hotel. Now they have closed this bank and built a new one.”  LS

The 1924 Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta building still stands at the corner of Hogan and Church Streets, across the street from the St. James Building in downtown Jacksonville. The replacement for the building opened in 1952 on this corner and was in use until the current Federal Reserve Bank Building location on Water Street was opened in 1987. Loyd Sandgren shot a number of photographs inside and out of the 1952 building when it first opened. The building now houses the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue headquarters.
