TEMPLES LETTING AGENTS

Subject: - UNION BANK of MANCHESTER, The Bull Ring, Northwich, Cheshire - The Bank is being rebuilt after serious subsidence problems. A new middle storey is being added and a new corner door is in place. The central door will be taken out. After its rebuild, it again becomes the Union Bank of Manchester, until 1940 when it is absorbed by Barclays Bank, after being affiliated with them since 1919.
Date: 1923
Size: approx 88 x 139mm - Standard Size
Publisher: C.E. Hall, Northwich
Publisher's Card No: none
Un-used:
Stamp Box: None
Condition: A real photo in excellent condition showing the Bank in the days of subsidence. This was due to massive undermining by the Salt industry. In this part of the country 'wich', as in Northwich, means Salt Town.
Further Information: In the 80's, when Barclays moved to a new glass fronted place in the High Street, this lovely building spent a few years in the doldrums with various businesses taking it on and failing. In 2015 it underwent a full overhaul and is today resplendent as the office of Temples Letting Agents
