For a century, The Bank of East Asia has served the people of Hong Kong. The Bank held its 100th Anniversary Exhibition to celebrate its centenary celebrations.
In addition to providing information on the Bank’s achievements and contributions to the banking industry over the past 100 years, the exhibition enabled visitors to interact with a timeline wall, and view rare historical artifacts from BEA’s archives that had never been on display.
Many of the items were closely connected to significant historical events and developments at the Bank and in Hong Kong. BEA specimen notes from 1924 gave visitors a glimpse of Shanghai’s dynamic banking industry in the early 20th century, while Chinese National Salvation bonds issued during the Sino-Japanese War were a reminder of a period of great hardship. The display of traditional cheongsams worn by frontline staff revealed trends of the past.
Collectively, the items on exhibit brought a century of history at BEA to life. Click the following link to experience the virtual tour:
