The Banco de Costa Rica (BCR) building in downton San José in this undated photo included in the book by Manuel Gómez Miralles, seen from north to south on Calle 4.

On the right, behind the little park, is now the store La Gloria.

Today despite the grey facade it is still known as the “banco negro” due to the black/green marble exterior prior to the renovation.

The Banco de Costa Rica look that gave it the "banco negro" monicker.
