Oatley Bank is an old bank located in the suburb of Dulston. The bank was named, strangely enough, after convict clockmaker James Oatley. In early 1917 Mr.Oatley was paid the sum of 75 dollars to build a clock for the new MacKlin Park tower. The clock was constructed and built into the tower between 1917 and 1919.

After James was pardoned, in no small part due to his public work on the clock tower, he worked as a watchmaker on Marsh Avenue, opposite to the Dulston Theater although this landmark building was later torn down in 1934 to put in a far less prestigious (but more profitable) carpark. In later years James' third son, Frederick, took over the now successful family business and when James passed away in 1939 the business only continued to grow as demand for the quality watches and time pieces grew throughout northeast Malton. The profits from the business were in turn invested with Oatley’s second son James Jr., who started up a small bank named after their father. To this day the Oatley Bank stands as a testament to success.
