This postcard, from 1910 or so I think, shows the Fourth National Bank building at 14 Peachtree Street, the southwest corner of Five Points.
Amazingly, parts of the building still stand, though you'd never know it from looking. It's currently the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies (visible here), a part of Georgia State University. Wikipedia describes the building's history as follows: "The Fourth National Bank opened the building on the corner of Marietta and Peachtree streets in 1905. Several floors were added in 1928. In 1966, the bank built a 41-story tower adjacent to its home, reducing the height of the original building by half and resurfacing it in the white marble that covers it today. The original architect was Cecil A. Alexander.”
