Throwback Thursday: Martins Bank

The Martins Bank building below, as of taking the picture a bar, was the first of two branches to open in Nottingham in 1931.

Martins was a private London bank that had its origins in the London Goldsmiths. It was bought by the Bank of Liverpool in 1918 whose headquarters I actually had the opportunity to visit recently – a beautiful Grade II* building that will feature in a later post. The bank was bought by Barclays in 1969 and closed in 1979.
