Summary of Banking Statistics, 1870-1880
Summary of Banking Statistics, 1870-1880.
The following statement is calculated from a series of voluminous Returns published by the Board of Trade, and which were furnished to that Department by the Bank Managers of the United Kingdom. A few Banks refused to furnish information, including the Bank of Ireland and three other Irish Banks. Such English and Welsh Banks as did not send Returns, only represented, in 1880, a total of £4,000,000 Paid-up Capital. The Scotch figures are in every respect complete.
