Bank of Liverpool

Sep 1.jpg

The Bank of Liverpool opens a Branch on the corner of Bedford Street South and Myrtle Street in 1899. Not quite the usual corner aspect for which the Bank of  Liverpool usually goes, whilst the Bank’s name can be seen in both streets, the doorway to the Branch itself is to be found in only one street.

Dear old Myrtle, she does look a little unloved in this photo, perhaps she is indignant at having to spend her final days as a sub-Branch to LIVERPOOL UNIVERSITY.  She survives at least until, but not beyond the 1969 merger of Martins and Barclays Banks, a better achievement than LIVERPOOL SCOTLAND ROAD which is bulldozed in 1966 to make way for the Mersey Tunnel Project, and from which some of the Myrtle Street staff shown below have come.

With no internal photographs to be found, and no visit to Myrtle Street by Martins Bank Magazine, this is all we are able to bring you for now. If however, you are able to help with images and/or information about this or any of Martins Bank’s 990+ other Branch buildings, please do get in touch with us at the usual address: gutinfo@btinternet.com.
