Earlier shops on this site were demolished to make way for the National Commercial Bank. Building began in 1937 when the safe (still in situ) was lowered into the basement and the concrete construction raised around it. The bank opened in 1939 and continued in business until the 1970s. After some setbacks the building was taken over by S L Hill, florist, and continues in the same ownership today (2002).
