American Trust and Savings Bank, beginning today, is mounting giant banners on the east and west sides of its Main Bank at 895 Main Street. The banners feature engaging artwork to recognize the bank’s 100 years of service to the Dubuque community. The mounting process on the east side of the building began at 7:00 a.m. this morning and is expected to be completed this afternoon. Mounting on the west side of the bank will be scheduled as soon as possible, weather permitting.

--The banner on the east side of the building, facing the river, is 70 feet tall by 50 feet wide and weighs approximately 215 pounds
--The banner on the west side of the building, facing the bluff, is 64 feet tall by 50 feet wide and weighs approximately 200 pounds
