The Bank Race

At a glance it appears that the Union National Bank Building (left) is winning the much discussed bank race in downtown Little Rock over the much shorter Worthen Bank building (right).  According to the Worthen Bank officials, the steel frame (used by Union) shows more progress than  the concrete structure (used by Worthen) but their bank will eventually catch up.  Both banks are still insisting on their mid-summer, 1969, opening dates.
