Commonwealth Bank Croydon

Commonwealth Bank Croydon
This example of the interwar style Art Deco bank buildings built by the Commonwealth Bank is located in Croydon at 6 The Strand.

According the the owner of the grocery shop next door the bank finished operations in the building over 10 years ago and the building is currently a video store.

The Commonwealth Bank building boasts a nice Art Deco relief above the front door however the rest of the building has been painted unsympathetically to the style.
Other Art Deco Commonwealth Bank buildings can be found here.
