24 Green Street, Post Office

History of 24 Green Street

Early 19th century

This was the post office. The Postmaster was Mr James Brown, father of Charles Edward Brown. The business of the Provident bank was also conducted here by Mr Brown; the Savings Bank, as it was latterly known, subsequently outgrew its office accommodation and more suitable buildings were erected in Sidney Street, known as Bank Chambers.
