Bulgaria 20 Levas -



A smaller note at only 59 x 120 mm. The woman is Duchess Desislava, a 13th century royal. Other than that her father was Tsar Ivan Alexander, and that she was married to Sebastocrator Kaloyan, who during that time was the ruler of the western portion of Bulgaria, I've not been able to find out anything much about her.

Bank of England 10 note (1975 - 91) showing Florence Nightingale:



Florence Nightingale is considered the founder of modern nursing. Appalled at the high casualty rates in the Crimean War (1853-6), she went out there and introduced new ideas of hygiene and care to the military hospitals that greatly reduced the loss of life. Returning to London, she founded the world's first professional nursing school at St Thomas's Hospital. She was nicknamed 'The Lady With The Lamp', and the banknote shows her visiting patients with a lamp in her hand.

When this note was first introduced in 1975, I remember a candy bar manufacturer running a competition in which the prize was 10 a week for life. It was promoted with a picture of Florence Nightingale, and the words "Imagine finding her on your doormat every week!" and added that, with a nurse like Florence Nightingale to look after you, your life should be a very long and healthy one! In fact, the competition winner would only have been able to receive Florence Nightingale notes until 1994, for that year these notes were withdrawn in favour of the smaller Charles Dickens design. I entered the competition but didn't win! I often wonder what happened to the competition winner: one thing is clear, their ten pounds a week now buys them a lot less than it did in 1975!
