The institutional film from 1961 showcases the newly completed 21-story First National Bank of Fort Worth building in downtown Fort Worth. In the footage, employees tour the facility, from the rows of teller windows to the vault in its Safe Deposit Department to the floors of office space. Next, locals gather for the bank’s opening ceremony.
