Martins Bank 1928+

Martins Bankís sub-Branch at Wrexham Cattle Market opens in 1959 in this wonderfully quirky building complete with its corrugated roof. Unfortunately, this is the only photograph of the Branch, so we canít tell what the nearby buildings look like.Redolent more of a public convenience than the Branch of a Bank,Martinsí customers can use it for just three hours on a Monday, which we will assume to be cattle trading day.Many of Martins Bankís Cattle Market (also known as Auction Mart) Branches survive the merger with Barclays, and some of them even remain open into the early part of the Twenty-First Century. Wrexham Cattle Market is not quite so lucky, being kept open as a Branch of Barclays only until 1975.

In Service: 1959 until 1975
