According to Landeck, in the late 1930's he lived on the corner of University Place and 8th Street. This view of the Manufactures Trust building was seen from Landeck's window. At that time, the bank was located on University Place.
In 1974 the artist extensively reworked this plate with engraving and retitled it Manufacturer’s Trust (Kraeft 127).
