A penny bank, established by the National Thrift Society, was opened last Monday evening at the Board Schools, Portobello-road. There were a large number of depositors, and more than 500 accounts were begun, the deposits ranging from one penny to 2. It is intended to establish similar banks in many of the Board schools.
