The Northern Bank
Northern Bank General Issue with branches removed
Small size £1 notes introduced
The Banknotes (Ireland) Act 1920 removed the requirement of banks to make payment on their notes at the branch of issue, stated on the note, as well as at the head office. The requirement to state the branch of payment on a note had lead to all the branches being stated on every note. This 1920 Act lead to the development of a new Northern Bank series of banknotes with branches removed, which first appeared in 1921. The design was broadly similar to Series B Type D in the case of the £5 denomination, and similar to Series B Type C in the case of £10 and £20 notes.
£5 notes small size 1927
Small size £5 notes were developed and introduced in 1927, just before the partition of Irish currencies lead to the 1929 Northern Ireland Issue.
Banknotes printed on both sides. Head Office Belfast, Dublin omitted.
