UNION OF LONDON AND SMITHS BANK LIMITED
The Union of London and Smiths Bank Limited acquired Prescott's Bank Limited, and its branch in Bedford Street, Plymouth, in July 1903.
In 1909 the Bank moved to new premises at 35 Bedford Street, on the corner of Bank Street.
When the Union of London and Smiths Bank merged with the National Provincial Bank of England Limited in 1918, it became the National Provincial and Union Bank of England Limited.
Because the National Provincial Bank already had a branch in George Street, Plymouth, this one was known as the Plymouth Union Bank Branch.
As from Monday August 8th 1927 all the National Provincial Bank's business in Plymouth was undertaken at this building, which had been extended to accommodate more staff.
