Old Notes: Multi-branch General Issues

By the late 1800s the banknote designs had settled down to a uniform format with branches listed either in the centre or on both sides of each note. The Northern Bank listed its branches around the four edges of its notes, until 1918 when it began to switch to listing the branches in the centre of its notes.

In 1918 the banks began to reduce the size of some of their notes, following the lead of the Bank of Ireland when it reduced its One Pound notes in size. This may reflect inflation producing an increased need for low denomination notes in circulation. • Version 2.1.0 • Last update • COPYRIGHT ©2000, 2009, 2015, M Mac Devitt.
