Savings Bank of South Australia Head Office

Savings Bank of South Australia Head Office

Historically the Savings Bank of South Australia building is significant because it represents a wholly South Australian Bank established in the early years of the colony. Built 1939-1943 it is a symbol of the continued growth of the Bank's operations which included school and work-place banking facilities as an early and at the time novel service for customers. Architecturally the Savings Bank of South Australia is a monumental example of its pre-war style with many interesting design features. The building exemplifies the architectural struggle between classical leanings and modern techniques.
