Seeing Double
As you gaze across Water Street toward the eight-pillar institution, compare closely what you see in the photograph with what stands here today. Built in 1831, the building was designed by architect Russell Warren. For 61 years the building housed two banks-Merchants Bank on the right and Mechanics Bank on the left. The prosperous whaling elite walked their money through the right door, while humble shopkeepers and skilled tradespeople marched their money through the left.
