It was originally the head office of the bankers, Hodgkin, Barnett, Pease, Spence & Co. LinkExternal link who were strong supporters of industry on Tyneside and North Durham. They were taken over by Lloyds in 1903, and the Collingwood Street office was one of the largest branches in the country in the 1960's.
