Funny piece of trivia for my British friends…..

Did you know that the Bank of England was founded by a Scot, and the Bank of Scotland was founded by an Englishman? :)

John Holland – banker – Englishman (founder of the Bank of Scotland, in 1695)
William Paterson – banker – Scotsman (founder of the Bank of England, in 1694)
