78.059.004 Interior Issaquah State Bank, 1914 p39, #57 Arcadia book caption:  The interior of the Bank of Issaquah was rich with detail. Note the art deco trim along the ceiling. The building was known as one of the most sophisticated in Issaquah. Its current appearance is due to a renovation in the 1940s, which covered up its ornate detailing. By the time this picture was taken in 1914, the bank had changed hands and had become the Issaquah State Bank.
