Caption: "From the moment the bright gold dome of Citizen's State Bank started rising at NW 23 and Classen, it haas been attracting attention. There is little woner-it stands out like the rising sun on a foggy morning. From the Northwest highway the gleaming gold sits like a jewel in the midst of the trees. Workers in downtown skyscrapers looking north can't miss it in the afternoon when the sun reflects from the dozens of curved aluminum panels. Cityans may grag: No one else has a building like that thing! Oh yeah? Kaiser Aluminum Co., inventor of the dome, announced Thursday that the dome was the fifth completed in this country in the past ten months! Completed at the same time was a theater-in-the round in Fort Worth, Texas................It was designed by Bailey, Bozalis, Dickinson and Roloff. the designers can spot it from their offices on the 33rd floor of Liberty National bank building. "It shines in my eyes all day," commented one employe of the firm. General contractor is Secor Buildings Co. of Oklahoma City. However, the tricky dome-raising was done by Benz, Inc. of Phoenix, Ariz...............It was a civic auditorium in Hawaii, which strikes a gold dome just like the bank's from the midst of a dank jungle. Others in this country are at Virginia Beach, Va., Borger, Texas, and Abaline, Kan. oklahoma City is the largest town with such a building, and Citizen's State is the only bank utilizing the strange construction."

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Take a warm afternoon (?) a construction job and stir in an American's natural interest in things mechanical and you come up with an excellent way to loaf and relax. That's the formula persons usein the vicinity of NW 6 and Robinson where the Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. is constructing a nine-story $3,500,000 building. Sidewalk superintendents are plentiful. Most persons come rushing down the street headed on an errand. As they approach the construction job, they stop and look into the 30-foot pit where the foundation is being laid. After about five minutes, the ordinary watcher turns and heads on down the street...."I think they're building it about the way I got it figured out," one man said. "I've lived in this town many a year and there sure have been same changes." "I come by here every day and watch," he added. (photo tag: When it is spring, construction projects begin to buss and they are almost a ways sure-fire pedestrian stoppers.)"
