Originally a branch of the Craven Bank, Bradford Market Street Branch appears in the 1912 Post Office Directory of Bradford as a branch of the Bank of Liverpool.  This indicates its provenance as the merger of the Craven Bank and the Bank of Liverpool, which takes place in 1906. 

 

A full address and a telephone number are also listed.  Market Street is closed in 1928, shortly after the creation of the modern day Martins Bank.  The Annual Report and Accounts of the Bank of Liverpool and Martins for 1927 provides the following information about the fate of Market Street branch:

{Owing to the continued increase in the Bank’s business in Bradford, the Office at Market Street had become inadequate and the business was accordingly transferred to Tyrrel Street Office, which has been considerably enlarged}.

The only published records of the existence of Bradford Market Street in Martins Bank’s records are in the Annual Report and Accounts and this newspaper advertisement.  The business of Market Street Branch is fully transferred to 4 Tyrrel Street, before Market Street closes completely, on 1 February 1929.
