Also known as the Canal and Banking Company, this bank was founded in 1831 and closed in the early 1860s. The bank was generally well run and well regarded, having survived the Hard Times. Pictured below are two notes from that bank (showing the different names on the bills). Much of the monty printed by this bank was never issued, which accounts for the large supply of bills available to collectors today in unissued condition.

I particularly like the last note, which appears to be one of the less common ones. Thanks for posting them.
