1981 mentioned in September List of Branches.
1981 Flat above branch was made available to officers as holiday accommodation at very affordable rentals.  David Jobson comments: "My family had two holidays in that flat above the branch in Katoomba. Some great memories of those days. It was a facility that did not appear to be all that well known within in the bank. I think the weekly rental was $10 back in the seventies when we were there with our kids."

The old ES&A Bank
A few doors down from the Grand Hotel (1891) is a large, austerely simple, two-storey, white Georgian house with cedar skirtings, architraves, doors and windows and oregon floorboards. Built in 1859 this was originally a store - the largest in the district. Later that year the ES&A Bank rented office space within the building. Victoria Stores were once located at the rear of the building but this adjunct was pulled down, probably when the Bank purchased the entire building in 1875. They added extensions in 1885, designed by William Wardell, including the downstairs ballroom. This was the birthplace Sir George Fuller, NSW premier in the 1920s.
 

Adjacent Bank of NSW also a Mansfield Bros design.

1881 1st branch:
The former CBC Bank was constructed c1880 to designs of Mansfield Bros for Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Ltd. It comes within the Mansfield genre of substantial and impressive two-storey Italianate style banks. The building retains much of its original detail and joinery. Situated adjacent to the Bank of New South Wales building, also by Mansfield Bros and near Kiama Post Office and other early commercial and civic premises, the former CBC bank is an important component of Kiama’s townscape and a reminder of the town’s elegant past.
The building falls within the Mansfield Genre of substantial and impressive two-storey Italianate-style banks comprising of ground floor banking chambers with first floor manager’s residence. Materials are rendered brick and slate, and the building retains much of its original detail and joinery, little compromised by the various uses to which the former bank has been put. (NSW Heritage Office Branch Manager's Report to Heritage Council 14 January 1981)
The former CBC bank was constructed c1880 to designs of Mansfield Bros for the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Ltd.
In 1979 Mr & Mrs Roslyn McKinnon, owners of the CBC Bank, nominated it for a Permanent Conservation Order. At that time the front of the building was occupied by a solicitors practice, the rear was occupied by a veterinary surgeon and the upstairs was let as a flat. The owners of the property were seeking protection under the Heritage Act for the building with a view to attracting rating and taxation benefits.
At its meeting of 14 January 1981 the Heritage Council recommended that a Permanent Conservation Order be placed over the former CBC Bank, Kiama.
A Permanent Conservation Order was placed over the property on 17 July 1981.
It was transferred to the State Heritage Register on 2 April 1999.
Aesthetic significance: It comes within the Mansfield genre of substantial and impressive two-storey Italianate style banks. Situated adjacent to the Bank of New South Wales building, also by Mansfield Bros and near Kiama Post Office and other early commercial and civic premises, the former CBC bank is an important component of Kiama’s townscape and a reminder of the town’s elegant past.
Integrity: The building retains much of its original detail and joinery.

2010 photos of ex-CBC bank from Mike Smith of Kyogle Property and Livestock, who says "Just wondering if anyone could find out the opening day of CBC in Kyogle which I believe to be around the 1922 cc. I have owned the building for 3 years and when scraping the paint off the windows and doors the CBC of Sydney was displayed. It was for many years a doctors surgery."
