In a sunny spot…

It looks as if the sun might just be shining on Sunbridge Road today, and how convenient that you can catch a bus to and from Martins Bank’s branch! 

We don’t have much written material for this branch, and only one staff image, so if you have memories of Sunbridge Road, or worked there and we’ve forgotten you, please get in touch at the usual address: [email protected].

In Service: Pre 1927 until 1942. Re-opened 1956 until 14 August 1972

Mothballs at the ready…

When the Second World War begins, it is clear that many people will be called up to fight or help the war effort.  As the War progresses, the demands of the Government’s Kennet Committee are such that it becomes necessary for Martins Bank to “mothball” some of its smaller branches, and occasionally some of the larger ones where there is duplication within a large town or city.  Many branches do not re-open, amongst this number are Bradford Sunbridge Road, and Preston Friargate. However, both are re-opened in 1956, eleven years after the end of the Second World War. Advertisements like this one are taken out to inform customers of the re-opening..
