The Richmond branch was established in 1864 and occupied rented premises until 1872 (located according to Sam Boughton in the block opposite the park) when a building was leased from Joseph Onus (Allotment 2 of Section 4 Town of Richmond) before moving to the former premises of the Australian Joint Stock Bank on the corner of Windsor Street and West Market Street (Allotment 2 Section 7 Town of Richmond) in 1931 which is the present location of the Westpac Bank (formerly Bank of NSW)constructed 1938.
Mr Walters (bandmaster of the N S Wales Lancer band) has the contract for painting &c at the local branch of the N S Wales Bank, and with his competant staff of men is making quite a transformation of the building. Mr Jenkins, the architect, came on Wednesday to inspect the work, and found everything satisfactory’.
