Viewed from outside, the Bank can appear as a formal establishment. But beyond the beautifully austere stone walls of the Bank’s building on Threadneedle Street lies a hive of activity incorporating a remarkable architectural history representing the dynamism of the institution, a diverse range of occupations and a vibrant social history. These themes are intrinsically linked, working in harmony with the values the Bank holds dear.

The Bank’s Archive photography collection provides a fascinating record of the Bank, its buildings and staff since the Victorian era. This exhibition will look at the Bank’s past, and explore the history of a medium that has come to dominate the world around us.

The display will provide an opportunity to see images of the Bank not generally accessible to the public as well as artworks and artefacts not usually on display. The Museum has worked alongside the Royal Photographic Society in running a competition for members of the public to replicate archive images of the City from the Bank’s collection - the winning entries will be on display in the exhibition.
