So what is the Laura Street Trio?

The moniker refers to three buildings on the corner of West Forsyth Street and North Laura Street; the former Florida Life Building, built in  the Bisbee Building, and the Old Florida National Bank, known as the Marble Bank. They were all built more than 100 years ago.
