For the past two centuries, the Bank of Montreal has been at the centre of Canada's economic and financial development. Marking the bicentennial of Canada's first bank, A Vision Greater than Themselves tells the story of the financial institution from its origins to the present through its iconography. Exploring the Bank of Montreal's past through images of objects, its leaders, key documents, and forgotten advertisements, Laurence Mussio illustrates how the Bank of Montreal emerged over time. He shares perspectives on leadership, culture, community, triumphs, and challenges to offer a glimpse into the bank's personality, innovations, technologies, nation-building projects, and architectural legacy. The mosaic that emerges provides a unique understanding of the Bank of Montreal's experience over the years. Individually, each visual reveals a self-contained story that is both entertaining and extraordinary. Collectively, these objects impart a much larger story. Throughout this volume's pages, a picture emerges of a bank that has shaped and been shaped by Canada and the North Atlantic world. Examining an astonishing range of material, A Vision Greater than Themselves celebrates the evolution of one bank and how it made its mark.
