bank manager

1) An alternative term for the colliery banksman in his role as the overlooker.

In 1893, a reporter for The Yorkshire Post felt obliged to write ‘A bank manager in London or Liverpool was a very different personage from a bank manager in Staffordshire or the mining regions generally, where he has to superintend the operations at the pit’s mouth’.
