The National Provincial Bank of England

Robert Morey continues his travels around London and this time highlights The National Provincial Bank of England at Bishopsgate in The City of London. This Historic British commercial bank operated in England and Wales from 1833 until its merger into The National Westminster Bank in 1970. In 1833 The Bank of England had exclusive statutory power to issue banknotes within a 65 mile radius of London, so therefore ‘The Provincial’ opened a number of branches to circulate currency in the towns and villages.
