Description

Full exterior view of Maine Savings Bank Plaza, 511 Congress Street, from southeast. Maine Savings Bank acquired the buildings between Mechanics Hall, and Brown Street (including the Motley Block), which were demolished in 1972 and 1973. The bank plaza was completed by December 1974, and in January 1975 Maine Savings Bank opened its corporate headquarters in the building.

Businesses located in the lower level of Maine Savings Plaza included Bookland book store, and a Deering Ice Cream restaurant (at right in the photo).
At the top of the office building, the bank's "ONE" logo, based on the U.S. one-dollar bill motif, which was used on Maine Savings Bank advertisements and credit cards.
