South Shields King Street Branch, is the home of Messrs Dale Young and Co Bankers, (1857) which in 1892 is taken over by the North Eastern Banking Company Limited. Just twenty-two years later, the North Eastern amalgamates with the Bank of Liverpool. Four years after that The Bank of Liverpool amalgamates with Martin’s Private Bank, and South Shields Branch finds its way by further amalgamation into Martins Bank’s North Eastern District, in 1928!  King street is one of the oldest Martins Branches still to be in service as a branch of Barclays. With branches at Tyne Dock, Laygate, Harton and Westoe, Martins has the South Shields area fully covered.  Our features below mark first the arrival, and then the departure eleven years later, of one of King Street’s Managers, Mr J A Charlton…

1946 to 1957 Mr J A Charlton Manager MBM-Wi57P48.jpgOn the last day of October Mr. and Mrs. Charlton invited many of their friends in the Bank to be their guests at a buffet tea held in the Royal Hotel, South Shields, to mark the occasion of his retirement from the Bank after 43 years' service. About 40 past and present members of his staff and many of Mr. Charlton's old friends were present and during the course of the party Mr. H. W. Warwick, Pro Manager at King Street, handed over a cheque representing the contributions of the subscribers, many of whom were unable to be present. Mr. Warwick spoke in warm terms of the qualities which had endeared Mr. Charlton to his staff and to his friends and wished him well on behalf of everybody. Miss Moira Sutton, the senior lady member of his staff, presented Mrs. Charlton with a bouquet. Mrs. Charlton, as Janet Greenwell, was herself formerly a member of our staff. Mr. Charlton entered the service in 1914 at Seahouses. From 1916-19 he served with H.M. Forces, afterwards returning to Sea- houses. He went to Durham in 1920 and to Newcastle upon Tyne in 1921. He was appointed Pro Manager at King Street in 1938, Manager at Byker in 1940 and Manager at King Street in 1946. Mr. and Mrs. Charlton have retired to a bungalow in Ponteland.

For our glimpse at the changeover of King street from Martins to Barclays, we have FOUR images – two exterior shots compare the 1960s and 1970s, whilst two internal views show the counter in the 1970s, and the banking hall of the early 1980s…
