To celebrate the fact that the Bank's total Deposits had passed the £20 million level, a Commemoration Dinner was held on December 14th 1935, in the Assembly Room of the recently opened Broad Street Head Office. The view is towards the northeast corner of the room, where a portrait of the then General Manager (J P Hilton) is hanging. Portraits of subsequent General Managers were also hung on this wall.
The figure of £20 million was reached during the Financial Year 1935/36 as the Year-end Balances were:
- March 31st 1935: £18,925,999
- March 31st 1936: £21,230,935
