Citizens' Bank
Toulouse between Chartres and Royal Streets

"The front of this building is a good specimen of the Corinthian order. On either side of the entrance are pedestals surmounted by statues. The pediment is ornamented by emblematic alto-relieves. The frame of the building, the window frames and the outside doors, are of wrought iron. The banking room is a parallellogram of 60 feet by 35, the ceiling being vaulted and neatly painted in compartments. It was begun towards the end of the year 1836, and finished about the beginning of 1838, in conformity to the plan of Messrs. Depouilly, architects, at an expense of $140,000."
