Commonwealth Bank Drummoyne

Commonwealth Bank Drummoyne
The Commonwealth Bank Drummoyne branch was located at 204 Victoria Road in Drummoyne. In 1914, the Government Savings Bank engaged Mr W Schofield of Dalley Street, Sydney to demolish the old Fire Station that was originally on the site and to erect a new two storey brick building. The work was supervised by the Bank’s architects, Messrs H E Ross and Rowe.

The GSB merged with the Commonwealth Bank in December 1931 and in 1937 the branch interior was completely remodelled. The work was carried out by S J Campbell of Mortdale and was completed in October 1937.

Banking operations were transferred to a new building in Drummoyne in March 1982 and the old branch was sold in July 1982 for $253,110.00.
