Belair National Bank at Bowie Plaza in the fall of 1973.

Belair National Bank occupied a spot in a building at the end of the Bowie Plaza parking lot near the present day post office.

This picture looks like it was taken by accident. In the background are Route 197, Brady's Citgo and some of the houses on Whiston Court.

Here is a more recent picture of the former Belair National Bank location. The neighborhood bank is now a check cashing business, and Bowie Plaza suffers from a high vacancy rate. Two years ago this building was fully occupied with a Starbucks and a Jackson-Hewitt office.

These pictures were posted as part of the Bowie Blade Pic Project, I've been posting pictures taken by Arnie Miles for the Bowie Blade between 1973 and 1975.
