Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank

Sep 1.jpg

The Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank opens its Branch at Blackpool’s North Shore in April 1924, less than four years before the amalgamation of the Lancashire and Yorkshire with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins to form the modern day Martins Bank.  This is the heartland of the seaside landlady, the kiss me quick hat and the saucy postcard (for which our apologies!)

The setting for North Shore Branch is this quiet little corner of Dickson road.   After a stroll in the sea air, and quick visit to the Bank to cash a cheque, you can relax next door at Orchard’s Café with a Hovis sandwich and a cup of Bovril.   Oh the joy of wet sand between your toes, as the rain comes down once more on day two of your holiday, streaming down the window of your damp one roomed accommodation…   At the time of the merger with Barclays, North Shore is seen as surplus to requirements, and is closed six months ahead of the amalgamation of branches…
