Lloyds Bank in 1959

The Francis Frith company, with their catalogue of old photographs, has many pictures of New Alresford, which you can see on their website. They also publish stories, or memories, from readers, and one, published in 2010, is from Valerie Neal, describing the time she worked in Lloyds Bank in 1959:

“I was working in Lloyds bank in 1959. I remember going across the road to fetch cakes from the bakery every day for the staff. We had six staff, this was before the extension to the bank. The other members were Mr Rainford, Mr Sherwood, and the manager whose name escapes me. The girls were Myrtle Young, another Anne and me. I also remember going to the cinema in Station Road. You could not hear a thing if it was raining because of the tin roof. I travelled to work by train from Winchester, it cost six shillings and fourpence return. Those were the days.”
