Helping Britain Prosper: 1765-2015

Date: 08.19.2015

Looking back across those 250 years, we can see agricultural, industrial, social and technological changes taking place, many of which Lloyds Bank has been part of. In recognition of our anniversary programme, we commissioned Ruth Goodman, the acclaimed social historian, to write a history of the economic and societal changes that have taken place. In doing so, she has drawn widely on information from historical archives, including our own.

We would like to share with you, via this digital version, the book Ruth has written, Helping Britain Prosper, 1765 – 2015. We hope that you enjoy it and find this social history of Britain of interest.

Our anniversary book covers a wider variety of subjects which have been broken down into ten chapters. To find out more about topics including the digital revolution, or the built world, follow the link below:
