Extract from Martins Bank Directory June 1968 � Barclays Ref 68-GB

Unfortunately we have no images of the Branch at South Road, and if you can help, please do get in touch with us at the usual address � [email protected] .It has not been possible to find articles relating to this Branch in Martins Bank Magazine. At the time of the merger of Barclays and Martins Branches in 1969, and despite having been a full six day a week branch of Martins Bank, Southall is sadly surplus to Barclays� requirements as they already have branches at 32 Broadway and 13 The Green.South Road survives less than a year under its new owners, and is closed in November 1970.

In the Summer 1967 edition of Martins Bank Magazine, this image of the first Weslyan Chapel in Southall was printed as part of a feature called �Fings ain�t wot they used to be�. This building would eventually be demolished and replaced by the premises that would become the Bank�s Branch at 27/29 South Road�

Jobs for the girls?

In 1969, equal opportunities for men and women in the workplace is a concept that is still a little way off being achieved in Britain. In theory from 1975 pay should be equal, but it takes decades to iron out a number of discriminatory �dodges� used by many employers to get round rules designed to bring fairness and equality to the work place. It is almost merger time when Martins Bank Southall puts an advertisement in the local paper, looking for the services of an experienced machine operator and/or a young lady who can be trained to do the same work.
