Many of the most beautiful historic buildings tend to be old banks, here's a couple of former banks from my home, Invercargill dating from the turn of last century (all on one intersection). Post yer banks.

(ex) Bank of New South Wales, Invercargill



(ex) Bank of New Zealand, Invercargill




(ex) National Bank, Invercargill, possibly previously occupied by Union Bank of Australia




this was a financial institution as well, not sure what it was though.

CBA have launched a site about their centenary: www.100yearstogether.com.au

Also of note... NAB are going to start a new "concept" branch at their HQ (with it going under construction just recently) and is scheduled to be complete in 5-6 weeks.

Time will tell if it's just a wank or something interesting - as it purports to be a 'revolutionary' new look at branch banking...
