IBM Banks 1993
While in college (Solomon), would often make the short 45 minute trip over to Montgomery with a crew of skaters to hit some different spots....a change of pace. Probably the favorite and most popular is known as the IBM Banks, so named because they were in front of the local IBM office. The whole area was filled with several commercial/business buildings, and there are other good spots to be found. These pictures are from a few trips over during the 1993-1994 years. (* this building was later bought by another company, Palomar Insurance, and some folks know it as the "Palomar" banks)
