Old Money from The Western Bank of Canada in Oshawa

The Western Bank of Canada was organized to support the industries of various towns located on Lake Ontario.  The bank operated from 1882 until 1909.  In November of 1908 The Standard Bank of Canada agreed to purchase The Western Bank of Canada.  The Western Bank has 26 branches at the time it was acquired.  Despite being open for 27 years, the bank only printed paper money in 1882 and 1890.  Our guide has more information.
