image0061930 is quite a busy year for Martins Bank which opens a total of six new Branches – four of which are in the South of England, three of those being established in the Capital itself.

It is something of a coup for the Bank to have set up shop at 213 Baker Street London, only four doors down from a certain Mr Sherlock Holmes!  We would be most obliged if a modern day detective were able unearth a picture of this branch.  There are no visits to Baker Street by Martins Bank Magazine, and no records of any staff retirements from this Branch. Luckily we do have images of several of the staff who work at Baker Street up to the point at which the business is transferred to Castrol House, Marylebone Road in 1962, and these can be seen in the staff gallery below. It must be possible that there are former staff with memories of this branch who might be able to tell us what it was like being positioned so close to one of the world’s most famous addresses!  If you can help, please do get in touch at the usual address – gutinfo@btinternet.com .
