Description: From the inside flap: "The Halifax Building Society began when eleven Halifax men met in the oak-panelled dining-room of a local inn one hundred years ago. During the ensuing century, its progress has been such that to-day it is the largest organisation of its kind in the world. The story of its growth, recorded in these pages by Oscar R. Hobson, of the News-Chronicle, economist and journalist, is far more than a record of commercial success — for building societies touch our national life at many points."

Aqua boards with gilt text on the spine. Illustrated with facsimiles of letters and newspapers, plus a number of b&w photographs. The jacket has some scuffing and a small tear along the top (refer to image), but is otherwise complete and in very good condition. Pages are roughly cut and are clean, tightly bound, and completely free from foxing or tanning.
