BANKING ENTERPRISE AT BARRY DOCK, MESSRS. LLOYD'S NEW BANK. One of the finest buildings in this neighbour- hood is that erected for Lloyd's Bank at Barry Dock, and where the banking business of that well-known firm will shortly be transferred. It stands at the corner of Dock View-road and Thompson-street—a beautiful specimen of archi- tecture. Every arrangement has been made for the carrying on of the increasing business of this popular bank, and while ample provisions are made for the use of the public, the comfort of the officials has also been well considered. The main entrance is at the angle of the building and facing the road leading to the dock, from which place the bank itself presents a very fine appearance. Just inside the entrance is the main counter, and behind the accommodation for the large staff of clerks which is required. The manager's office is a little to the rear of the front and business transacting room, but is a very good and useful position. There is also a side or private entrance, while on the first and second floors the private apartments are situated. The building is in Queen Ann's" style of architecture, and does credit to the architect, Mr. John Gethin, A.R.I.B.A. of the firm of Messrs. Richards and Gethin,. Windsor Chambers, Westgate-street, Cardiff. The contract for erecting the building was entrusted in the able hands of Messrs. Jones Bros, Park-street, Cardiff, who have done their work well. Mr. Mitchell, who is the manager of Lloyd's Bank at Barry Dock, is well-known for his thorough business habits, and to his exertion in a great measure is due the rapid growth of the business in this district.
