      Hello. Great photograph of a very difficult building.
      The building was actually designed by Robert Mills. The other architects worked to complete the exterior to his design, while completing the interior in their own style. Although each created important spaces, A.B. Mullett's sumptuous Cash Room is one of the most spectacular in the building, a crystalline example of the Victorian Renaissance Revival style.
