About This Image:
There’s no question that the First National Bank Building is prominent among historic Andalusia architecture. Not only was it designed by the same Frank Lockwood responsible for the current Covington County Courthouse, it stands six stories – a comparative skyscraper on the Andalusia skyline.
I’ve read an interesting tale that the original plan was not for such a tall building but the owner of the neighboring property raised his asking price. Undaunted the developer of the First National Bank Building decided to go UP instead. It makes for an interesting tale but this piece of historic Andalusia was built during the first boom of skyscrapers across America. Virtually none of these buildings would qualify as skyscrapers today, least of all the one in Andalusia. But it was built on a skyscraper scale when compared to the surrounding architecture, so I can’t help wondering what the story behind this towering building on Courthouse Square really is?
When my mother was growing up in Andalusia, it was known as the Timmerman Building, so despite the fact its had multiple names throughout its history, the one she knew it by is what I grew up calling it on our visits “home” to see family and friends in Andalusia. This piece of historic Andalusia with its trademark clock has been a crumbling landmark much of my life, a shadow of the building my mother knew.
So I was thrilled to read that the city has purchased it with plans not to demolish it but to renovate it as part of their continuing (and I would say successful) effort to revitalize the core of historic Andalusia. I see so many towns and small cities with crumbling downtown districts that it’s a pleasure to see the ones who are trying to make old structures work in a changing world. That new article was what prompted me to do this particular Andalusia art print. I wanted this piece to have a sense of history, and perhaps, for a change, not just a sense of what it was like back when but what it may be like again.
Do you have a connection with the old Timmerman Building? Perhaps family members once worked in the First National Bank Building? Or you simply love heritage architecture or historic Andalusia? I would love to know what brought you to this particular piece of art and hope you will take a few moments from your day to share your thoughts or questions.
Note: The First National Bank Building shown in this print is on the US National Register of Historic Places.

I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
