Bank of Liverpool and Martins

Sep 1.jpg

The Bank of Liverpool and Martins opens its first branch at Bolton in July 1922, in temporary premises at 39 Bradshawgate.  By 1924 the Bank is ready to move into purpose built and permanent premises at 12 Deansgate, which remain open through several amalgamations and mergers until it being closed by Barclays in 1989.

The Bank of Liverpool and Martins’ rivals in 1922, the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank also has its own branch in Bolton, at 25 Bradshawgate, and this remains open beyond the 1928 amalgamation of the two Banks, until being closed by Martins Bank in 1932. There are no visits to Martins Bank at Bolton by the staff magazine, but we do have a retirement write-up from 1959 when Mr Lee, Bolton Manager for thirteen years, calls it a day after a career which commenced at the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank and spanned forty-four years…

 

1946 to 1959 Mr F Lee Manager MBM-Su59P50.jpg1959 02 MBM.jpgAt the end of February Mr. Lee retired from the managership of Bolton branch, a position which he had held for thirteen years. Mr. and Mrs. Lee celebrated the occasion by entertaining past and present members of the staff, together with many personal friends and their wives. Using the Manager's room and with the counter converted to a buffet, the caterers excelled themselves both in the provision of edibles and with the decorative effects. The presentation in the form of a cheque, which will be used in the purchase of a powered lawn mower, was made by Mr. Heyes, the Assistant Manager, who has served with Mr. Lee through the whole of his thirteen years as Manager of the branch.

When Mr. Lee responded he acknowledged the tributes which Mr. Heyes had so charm­ingly paid to him and expressed his pleasure in having so many of his old boys present. After a gift of flowers had been presented by Miss Ridgway, Mr. Hill, the newly appointed Manager, expressed to Mrs. Lee good wishes for her health and happiness.  Mr. Lee joined the staff of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank in 1915 at Bury. De­mobilised in 1919 from the Royal Flying Corps, he returned to Bury where he remained until 1930. From 1930 until 1936 he served on the Inspection Staff and was then appoin­ted Manager at Darwen. In 1946 he was appointed to Bolton, having spent a short period in the capacity of Sub Manager at Brown Street, Manchester.
