We were lucky enough to be invited to view the HSBC archives the other day. A fascinating treasure trove of stuff from 1776 onwards.
There’s some wonderful stuff in there.
Monkey business is good business.
Inevitably hilarious pictures of computers from not that long ago.
Tates Improved Arithmometer
And lots of other wonderfully fascinating stuff. Loads more picture here.
The HSBC archives are open to the public by appointment only. We’re interested in archiving. Makes us wonder what other archives large corporation hold. Are they open to the public? Are they online? Anyone know?
