This Bank were founded and published as the first Iranian banknotes in the Nasserian era.

The exact date of construction of this garden, known as the Kiyanian Garden - House, is unclear, but due to its characteristics and the presence of old trees in the garden and its location in a well-weathered area that can be a good place to build aristocratic orchards can be dated back to Qajar era.

Its trees are almost entirely has dried down but there are still some old plantations in this area. These planes are well remembered during the reign of Nasser al-Din Shah, and have witnessed the hidden and obvious movement of many of the men of that era and the constitutional and post-constitutional years.

According to local residents on this street, the trees in the garden are being cut down at night. This garden-house has recently been taken over by the new owners and sold in different parts, and now there is a large dig in front of the building and it is feared that it will become a commercial tower in the near future or become modern residential apartments.
