Long Description:
Cyrilometodejská záložna vznikla na Zelném trhu v roce 1882. Byla prvním ceským penežním ústavem v Brne a její pojmenování dokládalo nadšené vlastenectví, nebot oznacení ceský se na Morave v té dobe nesmelo užívat. V roce 1914 dala záložna všechny ctyri domy, které k ní patrily, zborit a na jejich míste postavil stavitel Leopold Cupr podle projektu architekta Vladimíra Fischera novou monumentální budovu, která stojí dodnes. Našla v ní sídlo Právnická, a pozdeji Ekonomicko–správní fakulta Masarykovy univerzity. Autorem socharské výzdoby je V. H. Mach.
