I don't recall when some banks ceased putting their location on checks but it is rather certain that it had to do with banking firms such as Wells-Fargo, Bank of America, Chase and Capital One having branches everywhere making checks "local" in nature and eliminating problems customers would have presenting an "out of town" check when away from home. Since a few states have laws prohibiting banks with out of state ownership one would still run into a problem with a check written on an account from any of those large banking companies.
