These branch premises, here illustrated from the drawing which appeared at this year's Royal Academy Exhibition, are now in course of erection on a most commanding site at the junction of the Holloway and Parkhurst Roads. White Mansfield stone has been used for the dressings to the main elevations. The ground-floor is devoted to the banking business, and consists of a banking-chamber thirty feet square, with manager's-room, waiting-room, clerks'-room, etc., adjoining. The fittings throughout are in teak. 'The strong- rooms and lavatories occupy the basement, and are fitted with iron grilles and fireproof doors, etc., supplied by the Milner Company. The upper floors of the building are arranged for the manager's residence. The one-story building facing the Parkhurst Road consists of a spacious board-room, with waiting-room, lavatories, store-place and manager's private entrance.
