Pasadena's Investors Savings ( later Imperial ) built in 1958 looked like a little brother to Glendale Federal. Five storys, had the large vertical lovers that were movable to control the sun. It was designed by Bank Building and Construction Corp. It was located at the north west corner of Lake and Green St.. Across the street was Crocker Bank that had that increditable roof top sign 12 storys up that hung over half way into the street. Both banks are gone now.

Found it! It was a California Federal and then a Citibank!
1 W Bay State St, Alhambra, CA
1955, W.A. Sarmiento
Too early for the '60s program, but great anyway.
