Clydesdale Bank Ten Pound Note illustrating Mary Slessor (Front and Reverse)

Not strictly a "commemorative" note in that it replaced the previous Clydesdale Bank ten pound note but it was the first time that a woman had appeared on the front of a Scottish bank note. Mary Slessor was born in Aberdeen in 1848. In 1876 she arrived in Nigeria as a missionary in unvisited parts of the country. She adopted many abandoned children, becoming known as "Ma". She died in Calabar in 1915. The front of the note illustrates Mary and (behind her) an illustration of working at a loom in Dundee in the early part of her life. The map is of the area where she worked with the native people.

PENNY BLACK

The Penny Black was the world's first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system. It was issued by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on 1 May 1840, for official use from 6 May of that year.

All London post offices received official issues of the new stamps but other offices throughout the United Kingdom did not, continuing to accept postage payments in cash only for a period. Post offices such as those in Bath, began offering the stamp unofficially after 2 May.
