Description A laminated onto cardboard copy of a photograph: The National Bank, Cullensville. There is nothing written on the back.

The photograph was taken in March 1890, soon after the bank moved into its new premises on the west side of Allen Street, which the National shared with Arthur Litchfield. (Tyree Collection, Nelson Provincial Museum)."
