    ----------------------------------Short Story line------------------------------------

    Cincinnati's Changing Scene In 1907 the Provident Savings Bank & Trust Co. purchased the southeast corner of Seventh and Vine Sts. to erect a new office building. Then five years old, the bank had occupied basement rooms in the old Chamber of Commerce Building, Fourth and Vine Sts. The west half of the building, still housing the bank, was completed in 1908 and the east half some time later, giving the building its present size. The Provident Savings Bank & Trust Co. grew from the consolidation in 1902 of two firms, the Provident Savings Bank Co. and the Provident Trust Co., both of which . wart incorporated in 1900.
