Hibernia Bank & Trust Co.
Hibernia Bank & Trust (now Hibernia National Bank) was organized in 1870 and is today the oldest banking name in Louisiana. Its 23-story main bank building, opened in 1921 and shown here in this blotter, was for years the tallest building in New Orleans. Although its height has been topped by many other buildings downtown, the Hibernia tower remains one of the most familiar landmarks in the city.
