A short-lived affair…

Colour Logo - True Colours 1959.jpgWe love a good mystery, especially when it surrounds one of the Branches of Martins Bank.  Clitheroe Auction Mart sub-Branch is listed as opening in 1937, closing at the outbreak of World War II, but NOT re-opening afterwards.  This is certainly not unusual, as many branches originally mothballed for the War do remain closed.  It does however seem strange to have opened an outlet for such a short period of time.
