Upgraded the Old Notes section with enhancements to the Northern Bank 1920-1927 with the addition of many new images, plus the addition of a new listing of the dates of issue for the banks in this period Northern Bank 1921-1927 Dates, and a section on Northern Bank overprints 1920-1921.

Upgraded the Old Notes section with enhancements to the Ulster Bank 1920-1927 with the addition of new images, plus the addition of a new listing the dates of issue for the banks in this period Ulster Bank 1921-1928 Dates. Also added images of the 1929 overprints on £1 notes dated in 1927.

These additions mark the completion of the rolling upgrade process of the sections on small size banknotes of the five joint stock banks which operated in the Irish Free State (from ca1920) prior to the partition of Ireland.

Finally started work on Phase Three B upgrade of the Old Notes section, with the collation of all the images of Joint Stock Bank notes 1783-1920 that I have been accumulating, mostly from the web, over the past 20 years. There are well over 600 new pics so far, with more to be added and named!

Several large older collections came onto the market over the past decade, providing a good range of notes for illustration. Also, some notes are available from museums, archives, and private collections. This provides a good arrange of the notes issues which were not available for illustration back in 2001 when the original Old Notes section was added.

The sections on each of the six banks will be completely replaced with the new structure already in use for later Old Notes, 1918-1920.

There are six Task Groups in Phase Three B:
—Bank of Ireland sections on 1783-1918 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.
—Belfast Banking Company sections on 1824-1920 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.
—National Bank sections on 1835-1918 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.
—Northern Bank sections on 1824-1920 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.
—Provincial Bank of Ireland sections on 1824-1918 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.
—Ulster Bank sections on 1835-1918 notes upgrade. Start: 26.03.18. 10% complete.

The basic layout for the Phase Three B upgrade, stage 1 below is now completed.

There are three stages in Phase Three B:
1. Create new introduction pages for each of the six banks. Start: 26.03.18. 80% complete.
2. Create new pages for banknote images. Start: 26.03.18. 0% complete.
3. Process images gathered and standardise at 72dpi, 1:1 scale of actual size. Start: 16.04.18. 40% complete.
Many of the banknote images were submitted and gathered from the web and other sources since 2002. Some were scanned from collections and archives. Others are taken with camera phones and other photo devices. These all need to be prepared and saved at actual size relative to each other. In many cases the images will need to have their colour corrected to remove scanner and other artefacts.

Currently there are 700+ banknote pictures to be prepped for the first update, which will provide a comprehensive display of the banknotes issued by the six joint stock banks since their creation.
More images will then be added later on.
