Round bank built in 1968 - South Philly

This round glass bank was built in 1968, as the Burton C. Simon Savings & Loan, which I see on Conestoga's Website was eventually worked into the Conestoga Bank system. The frieze around the perimeter was engraved with what could have easily been mistaken for a traditional Greek key design, but that was actually a series of stylized letter As. Although the frieze has recently been covered with aluminium siding, you can still see the same 'A' on the door handles. Its meaning remains a mystery, according to Inga Saffron's column in yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer, 9/27/15, at p. H19.
