A grand design, this Branch at Northumberland Street Newcastle upon Tyne is opened in June 1923 by the Bank of Liverpool and Martins.  In the 1960s, the upper floors serve as the North Eastern District Junior Training Centre, and a steady flow of new cashiers are given the skills they need to ensure they will go to extremes to be helpful.

Northumberland Street does not make it to the merger with Barclays, closing in 1968, as the business is transferred by Martins Bank to an new Branch at 7 Market Street.  For our Northumberland Street feature, we go back to  1961, where it is time for Mr Blaylock, Manager  for almost twelve years, to retire.  As usual, Martins Bank Magazine is on hand to say farewell…

1961 01 MBM.jpgAt the end of January Mr. A. E. Blaylock retired after 44 years' service. On his last day he was entertained to lunch at Grey Street by Mr. L. J. Walton, North Eastern District General Manager, and in the evening he took leave of his friends at a cocktail party which he gave for them at Tilley's Restaurant. About 60 past and present members of the staff attended the party and during the course of the proceedings.

1960 s Newcastle Northumberland  St Interior 4 BGA Ref 30-2011.jpg1949 to 1961 Mr A E Blaylock Manager MBM-Sp61P56.jpgMr. Walton made the presentation on behalf of the subscribers of a radiogram, after thanking Mr. Blaylock for his service to the Bank and expressing the good wishes of everyone to Mr. and Mrs. Blaylock for the best of good fortune in their retirement.

In reply Mr. Blaylock thanked his staff for all their help and in a humourous speech remarked that although banking is often described as a satisfying career, after 44 years he now regarded himself as satisfied and looked forward to a more leisurely pace of living.

A most enjoyable evening was brought to a close by the presentation of a bouquet to Mrs. Blaylock by Miss L. Aubrey (Northumberland Street). Mr. Blaylock entered the Bank in 1916 at Wingrove, and subsequently served at Elswick, West Cornforth and Benwell before receiving his first appointment as Clerk-in-Charge at Newbiggin in 1938. He became Acting Manager at Blyth in 1942, Manager there in 1946, Manager at Whitley Bay in 1948 and Manager at Northumberland Street the following year.
