CBC Bank

CBC Bank
The building at 686 Botany Road (Cnr Gardiners Road) in Mascot was originally a Commercial Banking Company of Sydney branch.

It is another example of a 1930s interwar period Art Deco suburban bank building. It is listed in the 1934 book "A Century of Banking - the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Limited, 1834-1934". The CBC merged with the National Bank in 1981 to form the National Australia Bank.

The building was sold in 1988 for $676000.00. It is now home to "Simplicity Funerals".
