From left to right, The Florida Life (1911) , Florida Bank (1902), & the Bisbee (1908) Buildings await their restorations, which will hopefully begin this spring. The two taller buildings were designed by Henry Klutho, Jacksonville's most influential turn of the century architect. Because of him, Jacksonville is home to the largest collection of "Prairie Styled Architecture" outside of the Midwest. BTW, the "Prairie School Movement" was led by Frank Llyod Wright and Louis Sullivan in the early 1900's.
