A note for non-UK residents: the Girobank was set up by the UK govermnent to replace the Post Office Savings Bank, with HQ in Bootle (a local landmark referred to simply as The Giro). This issued Girocheques which were used by government departments for payments out. In the end it was privatised - i.e. sold to Alliance & Leicester, but the cheques are still referred to as Giros, and the building retains its local name despite now carrying the Alliance & Leicester name. Beware in the Liverpool area when asking directions - some landmarks are hard to identify for strangers. (Possibly the worst is The Rotunda, which is a flat triangle of grass. The Rotunda cinema was demolished by German bombers and never rebuilt....)
