478 pp, 10" H. Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs, reproductions. "(T)he story of the Royal Bank, told not only in terms of executive personalities and corporate strategies, but also through an exploration of its corporate culture - of the lives of the people of the Royal - and of the part this corporate culture played in the opening of the country and the expansion of international trade. Throughout are vignettes that focus on some diverting details in the life of the Royal Bank. How many, for instance, know that Henry Mullins, the manager of the Mariposa branch of the Exchange Bank in Stephen Leacock's 'Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town', was based on a real-life Royal Banker, George Rapley, of the Orillia, Ontario branch? Or that, in an effort to foil robbers, tellers were often expected to sleep on the bank premises (sometimes in front of the vault) with loaded revolvers under their pillows? Eminently readable as well as informative (this book) fills an important gap in Canadian business history." Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly top edge small scratch on both panels, tiny dent on front panel.
