SERVICE: 8 NOVEMBER 1971 -
8 NOVEMBER 2020
49 years ago today, aged 18 ,after travelling down from Scarborough on the 14:20 train , changing at York , to King’s Cross Station.
I started my working life with Midland Bank , 245 Ealing Road , Alperton ( near Wembley ) . The bank put me up in the Marlborough Hotel ,St John’s Wood and gave me two weeks to find somewhere to live.
Leaving home for the first time was very daunting , particularly moving from a seaside town to the big city.
It was character building and I am glad I did it.
Ken Andrews was manager , Mr Herrick , assistant manager.
I can’t remember all the names of the staff there then but I’ll have a go
Others who came later
Junior Leroy Briggs
Susan Costello ??
Margaret & Mary Carney
