Annual General Meeting
The date of this event is unknown, but probably took place during the period (1957 to 1964) when H J Sutherland was the BMB's General Manager. Approximately 150 delegates from the majority of the various savings banks are shown in two locations. The first image shows the delegates at a formal dinner held in the Bank's Broad Street Head Office. Several BMB staff are identifiable:
The second location appears to be a room in Birmingham's Council House - probably being used for a civic reception. Sitting on the second row, from the left, are (1st) Stanley Guy; (12th) Jack Sutherland; (15th) Eric Howlett. Behind the 5th person in the same row are Frank Whitehouse and Jim Holmes.
The agenda of these Annual General Meetings included the adoption of the Annual Report, committee reports, submission of annual accounts, and the presentation of certificates to prize winners in the Associate Examinations
