Bank of Liverpool and Martins

Fish Quay is an original sub branch of the Bank of Liverpool and Martins Limited. It opens in 1922 little more than mid-way between the bank’s acquisition of the North Eastern Banking Company, and the shortening of its own name to Martins Bank in 1928, following the merger with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank.  At the time of the 1969 merger, Fish Quay is one of the smallest branches to have been taken over by Barclays.

In this lovely image, it looks to us just like a scene from Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”, perhaps Fagin and some of his ne’er do wells are about to come swaggering down that sinister looking staircase.  Fish Quay Branch closes for the duration of World War 2, re-opening in 1946.

Today it is an Italian restaurant, and we do hope that at the very least, it does offer at least one FISH dish
