Dominating the corner of Central & San Mateo, the Bank of the West Tower was once the tallest building in NM.

Some of your pictures bring up so much personal history!  I used to live about 3 blocks from this building. About 35 years ago an old friend showed up on my doorstep unannounced  (which I was pleased about).  I asked how he found me and he said my father told him to go to the tallest building in Albuquerque, go 3 blocks west then 3 blocks north and he'd find me.  And he did!!

Funny story.. Another ABQ friend remembers a car lot next door to the building and he thinks a big green electric sign. All a long time ago too...
