Lonnie Enzweiler told us this building won awards for its design when it was first built.   He had trouble believing it too.

“On the night of October 26th, a safe deposit vault in the Bank of Alexandria, Ky., a few miles south of Cincinnati, was blown open by cracksmen, and the bank officials state that $40,000 worth of Liberty Bonds were stolen. The robbers did not attack that part of the vault in which the bank’s funds were deposited. They gained entrance to the building by boring a hole in the lock and inserting a small charge of nitroglycerin. The post office at Alexandria, which has a safe deposit box in the bank, lost stamps and money amounting to $1,000. All the telephone wires leading to nearby towns were cut by the robbers.” More about the robbery here.
 From the Bulletin of the N. Y. State Safe Deposit Association, November 1919.

The two banks in Alexandria merge. Bank of Alexandria changes ownership.
