1964 Sunderland Grangetown Exterior Lit Sign BGA Ref 30-1093.jpgimage074Martins Bank’s sub-Branch at Sunderland Grangetown opens in 1964 on Windsor Terrace, and with its illuminated sign is actually more redolent of a chip shop than a bank.  This is another case of “blink and you’ll miss it”, as Grangetown is one more casualty of the 1969 cull of branches ahead of the merger with Barclays.  Still, whilst open it does provide a full six day banking service.  Our records show that a nightsafe is installed, but this is not apparent in the image above, and may (or may not) have been added after the photograph was taken.
