C.B.A. Branch Opens in Richmond

The Commercial Bank of Australia has gained full branch status in Richmond. In 1925 the C.B.A. opened an agency in Richmond and was the first bank to provide the small community with banking services. Now, almost half a century after those humble beginnings, the bank has opened branch operations in new premises. From 1967 the agency was operated daily from Nelson.


Standing proudly outside their new premises are Graham Duncan (new business officer), Graham McGifford (manager), Lance Elliott (second officer) and Peter Hart
