The year 2012 marks Standard Bank’s 150th year in banking. As the oldest name in banking in South Africa, Standard Bank is one of South Africa’s best known brands.
The 150th anniversary will be marked with an exhibition which will take the form of a timeline, using fascinating works drawn from the Standard Bank Corporate Collection to illustrate the ideas and events – local and international - that have shaped South African history over the decades.
A second display, mounted on the ground floor of the Gallery will make use of artefacts, photographs and other visuals, drawn from the institutions rich archival collections to highlight the history of the bank as the oldest name in banking in South Africa with deep roots in South Africa.
