In the 1940s this was 'Martin's Bank' & later it was taken over by Barclay's. Today it still stands but it is now a Funeral Parlour.

This is the start of Cuthbert St which was on the junction of Prince Consort Rd. My grandmother lived in an upstairs Flat on this corner (2 Cuthbert St) & downstairs was the 'Relief Office'. I think it was once a week when the unemployed men queued up along the back lane & into the rear yard of the Office. That was the day my Gran who was a reserved young woman then stayed at home because she hated having to go in & out of the house via the stairs leading into the yard & pass all those men.

This was a reservoir used in one of the industrial processes at either the Bauxite or Tennant's Chemical Works further down the bank. In the 1950s when I was a young boy, the Bauxite & the Chemical Works were gone & they'd left an industrial wasteland or eyesore. Us kids used to play around this reservoir & sometimes there was an old wooden raft to play on. The reservoir wasn't deep so you could stand on the raft & use a pole to push it.
