Martins Bank 1928+

Sep 1.jpg

image082In 1968 Martins Bank’s Jesmond Branch at 261 Jesmond Road is downgraded to sub-Branch status and its main business is moved along Jesmond Road to the rather attractive premises shown above at Nos 89/91.  There is already a wealth of Martins Branches in Newcastle upon Tyne, either from the 1914 merger of the Bank of Liverpool with the North Eastern Banking Company, or those which are  opened subsequently.

To move a branch this late in Martins’ history might suggest that one end of Jesmond Road may now offer better prospects for bank custom than the other, but in this case the answer lies in this image of a large car park and rear entrance (shown here, right) which is signposted “Martins Bank 89-91 The British Council”.  It is not uncommon in the mid to late sixties for the Bank to begin moving to smaller and/or more modern purpose built premises closer to, or shared with other local business and shopping facilities.  This is nothing more than a reflection of the way in which our town centres are evolving. 88/91 Jesmond Road survives the merger with Barclays and remains open for a total of twenty years. You can meet the staff of the original branch on our 261 JESMOND ROAD page.
