Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

HSBC have just launched their new History Website, documenting and sharing its heritage journey and story. The archive, which has amassed a diverse range of material and content over the decades, reaches right back to their early foundation in 1865. As one of the largest financial organisations in the world, HSBC has survived the Great Depression and the Second World War, going on to grow exponentially in scale and reputation, recognised as pioneers in technology.

The unique HSBC History Website contains over 150 years of heritage and was launched on 6 July 2021. This site will act as a single point of reference for internal and external stakeholders, such as employees and customers, facilitating access and research, and exploration and discovery.

We are thrilled that this vast digital collection is managed and shared via our PastView platform and that visitors will be able to uncover a wealth of born-digital and digitised HSBC assets in a host of new and digitally immerse ways.  

Photographs feature with the earliest from c1863.
