The end of cheques

In the UK at least, the end of cheques has been postponed indefinitely – they may only be used for a small proportion of banking transactions, but the 2018 deadline that the British banks had set for their abolition has apparently been deferred indefinitely.

So, as an exercise to anybody with a keen eye for banking stationery, readers are invited to guess the age of the photo used to illustrate http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2011/jul/12/cheques-abolition-plan-scrapped .  No prizes, just a bit of kudos to anybody who can improve on my (fairly precise) guess.  Answers in comments on the blog please
