Bank of Liverpool and Martins

The area in and around Middlesbrough is so linked with the North-East of Engalnd, that sometimes it’s hard remember that it is part of Yorkshire. This is Martins Bank’s Linthorpe branch  in the 1930s, and like many from this period it has a basic shop window with a curtain to offer some semblance of privacy for customers from the gaze of those in the street. The lettering of the word “BANK” is reminiscent of the banks shown in American Westerns – Whether or not customers would turn up in Stetsens and boots with spurs on, and “hitch up their critters” to a post outside is a question we find ourselves unable to answer!

Locating a branch in a rented shop unit is forward thinking for this time, and since 2007 Barclays has itself been moving out of freehold traditional bank styled premises into rented shop fronts that can be moved if the “footfall” of customers changes.  Opened in November 1927 by the Bank of Liverpool and Martins, Oxford Road Linthorpe sub-Branch lasts until 1985, when along with Middlesbrough Parliament Road, it is closed forever.  Not self-accounting, but open full banking hours over six days, this is likely to have been a busy little branch in Martins’ day…
