Interesting information on the issued £2 note !

The photo of the ledger above gives some nice context. I was a little puzzled that the photo is different to the one I found and it looks like there was an earlier tweet with single pages, including the previous Page 149. This also has some experimental designs.

I have written to the Bank of England and maybe, just maybe, more info will emerge especially about the £2 note. The image above is quite intriguing! Why BOI when the ledger and presumably the artist were in the BOE?

This Bank of Ireland £1 note from 1907 with the signature of Chief Cashier W.H. Baskin appeared recently at auction. Notes with the Baskin signature were issued between 1904 and 1919 with the branches listed in 4 lines from 1904-1907 and 5 lines from 1908-1919. The early type with branches listed in 4 lines is quite rare.

That 1907 note is a nice find, I had only seen notes up to 1906 with four lines of branches - 1908 Bank of Ireland notes have five lines of branches
