Synopsis

From its origins in a simple schoolroom on St George's Day 1849, the West Bromwich Building Society has grown into one of the country's top performing building societies. In "From Little Acorns" renowned local historian, Professor Carl Chinn, captures the story of a major financial institution against a background of significant social, economic and political change and upheaval. It is a dramatic account of an organisation that has faced crises and challenges, but one that has risen to become a strong and modern business without ever sacrificing its founding ideal of helping ordinary people to improve the lives of them and their families.
