Melville Farmers & Market Bank : now a Senior center. The bank is done in Black and great metal work in the Art Deco style.

What are the characteristics of Art Deco architecture?Art Deco is characterized by vertical emphasis and the use of new materials like chrome, stainless steel, and opaque plate glass. Designs are geometric and use shapes like pyramids, chevrons or zigzags, and lightning bolts. Buildings sometimes include stylized figures of waterfalls, sunrises and mythological figures.
