    Carlisle City and District Banking Company, £5 note

    England, AD 1830s-50s

    This panorama gives a multi-faceted view of nineteenth-century life. In the foreground is a country scene, with people walking in fields and sheep grazing by the River Eden. On the far bank cattle are wading and a line of washing is hanging out to dry. The dense buildings of the city of Carlisle rise in the distance, factory chimneys contrasting with the castle and the cathedral.
