Sunnyvale’s Bank of the West, originally a branch of the First National Bank of San Jose, was designed and built to reflect the general optimism of the space-age. The modern bank building, encompassed in a giant curtain wall of glass, stands as a roadside advertisement for the services inside. Initially, the bank had four drive-in teller windows, catering, quite literally, to the customer on wheels.
