    I am the girl on the right in frame 54 onwards. I was 16 years old and the launch of Girobank was huge. Fond memories and I remember a photo of me being in a huge display in a mobile advertising unit. I would love to find out where it went. If you would like any details of the early days there please get in touch. Lyn Fuller. (WAS Lynda Clark then)
