Centralbanken for Norge was a Norwegian bank with headquarters in Oslo
established by the Central Association of Private Banks outside Christiania,
Norway in 1897.
Central Bank of Norway was established as a joint bank for commercial banks
with main offices abroad, who wanted to participate in the strong growth
of Oslo City.
The headquarters was built between 1919 and 1922 in Oslo and was designed by
Waldemar Hansteen and Henrik Bull.
Centralbanken for Norge did very well during the period during and right after World War I,
but did not do very well beyond the early 1920s. In 1923, 20 commercial banks and five savings
banks declared bankrupt and placed under public administration, including
Centralbanken for Norge. The bank officially closed in 1936.
