At this point Branch Banks with representation at UK University sites can expect to open up to and sometimes well over 1000 student accounts in the first two weeks of term. In the 1960s however, things are not yet quite so frenetic, and in 1965 Liverpool’s Brownlow Hill is set for redevelopment. It is time for Martins to leave its original premises, and take temporary refuge at 45 Bedford Street North.  If you were a student at Liverpool University at this time and by any remote chance took a picture of your friends that might have this temporary Branch in the background, we’d love to hear from you!  To send images and memories about this, or any of our branches, please do get in touch with us at the usual address, gutinfo@btinternet.com.  Following extensive building work, Brownlow Hill is redeveloped, and Martins moves into a brand new branch at ALSOP BUILDING, from where a student banking service has been dispensed ever since…
