    Default Liverpool Saving Bank on Park Road

    I worked in the L.S.B on Park Road in the Dingle many years ago !, I had been using the Bank since I was about 2 and had always been fasinated by the high ceiling, mosaic floors and the beautiful glass and wood doors with huge brass handles, and it was the place to be quiet, the only sound I remember was the THUMP of the stamp when the cashier completed a transaction!.Anyway I ended up working there it was a joy to see the building from the other side of the counter.
    Sadly the building closed its doors years ago !, and remains empty there is a picture on toxteth.net.
