Lawrence Bank bank notes

 Collection — Folder: 1
Call Number: RH MS P433
Overview The collection contains four Lawrence Bank notes of three and five dollar denominations. These notes are imprinted with "The Lawrence Bank, Lawrence, Kansas" but were probably issued by the Lawrence National Bank, which was established in the 1860s. Imagery on the notes, which allowed the bearer to exchange the notes for cash, included a Native American woman holding a baby, a Native American man attacking a bison, and industrial scenes with a river barge prominent next to smoking factories.
Dates: 1860s?
