Some interesting information about the Walker Center in Salt Lake City:

It's a skyscraper that was formerly known as the Walker Bank Building It was opened on December 9, 1912, taking a little over a year to be built. At the time of its completion, it stood as the tallest building between Chicago and San Francisco (16 stories, 200 ft/67 m). It was originally constructed as the headquarters for Walker Bank, founded by the Walker brothers. The basement originally contained the vault for the bank, as well as a barbershop, florist, cigar store, and other shops. The main floor contained the bank, and upper floors were used as office space.

The Walker Center is topped by a 64-foot weather tower, which gives a weather forecast based on the color of the lights (they are blue in Gerry's photo). The weather tower was taken down in the 1980s due to a city ordinance but replaced in 2008. The meaning of the tower colors are:

blue: clear skies
flashing blue: cloudy skies
red: rain
flashing red: snow
