Hibernia Bank Building …

To the Editor:

Nice article on Hibernia Bank building, but it was not the only building in the area to withstand the 1906 quake and fire — check out the Grant Building at Seventh and Market about a hundred feet from Hibernia Bank standing proudly even as dynamiters moved in to bring down the crumbling building across Seventh where the Odd Fellows building now stands.
