Before the days of ATMs Screamers and Johnny's provided access to bank accounts 7 days per week,
24 hours per day. A service unheard of and unavailable to main stream civilians.

The caption originally accompanying the above photo reads - 'The Club provides 15 modern shower recesses and up- to-date toilet facilities'. Implying what? I wonder.

Sadly the White Ensign Club closed its doors to the sailors of the R.A.N in March 1972, never to reopen - Johnny's, in Sydney, followed a similar fate a few years later.
