Information on Bangor in the archive is scarce. Our earliest agent was Archibald Worthington who represented Norwich Union Life in 1818 and also covered Port Penrhyn...
By 1868 Norwich Union had no Bangor representative but other Aviva companies were in the town. John Williams of 294 High Street is listed as agent for Accidental Death...
...at 204 High Street William Y Hardie was selling policies for Edinburgh Life...
...and John Pritchard represented West of England from his offices at 3 Plas Llwyd Terrace.
The final archive reference to the town is from General Accident who reported in 1910 that a Liverpool Inspector had "been given headquarters at Bangor, North Wales, to enable him to more effectively work the district to which he is attached."
Staff working in Bangor seem to have been very camera shy - do you have any photographs?
