Bank of Commerce extends building
May 8, 1947 – Springhill Record
Work will begin immediately on the extension to the building of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, Mr. S.D. Reid, Manager of the local branch, announced this week. The contract for this work has been placed with Rhodes, Currey and Co. of Amherst.
The new addition will be the width of the building and will extend back 20 feet. The new vault will add a further extension of 18 feet in width and 9 feet depth. The construction will be brick to match the present building.
The new addition will give the bank much additional working space and do much to lessen the present congestion.
