From The Inquirer:

Chase’s new Cobbs Creek branch, which opened quietly in November, took over a structure that was built for the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society (PSFS) in the 1920s…

PSFS was the nation’s first savings bank when it was created in 1816, said Patrick Grossi, the executive director of the Philadelphia Preservation Alliance. The organization got the 52nd Street structure listed as a historic landmark by the city in 2011.

Many of the original details have been preserved, including the old vault and two of the original light fixtures.
