photoblog image State Bank of India

State Bank of India

The Bank of Calcutta (later renamed the Bank of Bengal) was established in 1806. This, along with the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras were incorporated in to The Imperial Bank of India. And the finally in 1955, this became the State Bank of India.

 

This is the branch on Strand Road, Kolkata. The logo can be said on several locations: the blue circle with a round cutout and bottom slot in the centre. This round + slot cutout stands for the common man and represents the notion that the bank considers the common man at the core of its banking interests. Similarly, the slogan of SBI is "Banker to every Indian".

The second shot is to show how those two floors are supported with respect to the rest of the building. I really liked that feature.

A very impressive building to give confidence
It is a very fine looking building Ayush. That feature on the second picture is must unusual
Quite an imprssive building Ayush! I like the architecture.
Very fine looking buildings aren't they, and I like the ethic in their logo, sadly banks in the west don't think the same way.
What a really impressive building, brilliant architecture.
That is some building, Ayush.
Majestic!

Impressive building and corporate message, I hope they live up to their lofty ideals better than our big banks have done.
This is a wonderful building Ayush... i like your shot of the terrace just as much....petersmile
Great looking building - and you're showing it off well!
I sure hope they live up to their mission statement, Ayush!!!
These types of buildings are certainly from another era. "Imperial" sums it up. Parts of London look like this.
