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.
