Product Description


This is the first biography of George Carr Glyn (Lord Wolverton) who led the development of Glyn's Bank into one of the largest private banks

in London. From his involvement in the new St Katharine's Dock in the 1820s he was equally active outside the bank.

As chairman of the London and Birmingham and the London and North Western Railways he played a central role in the development of the British railway system, on which he had radical views, and through the Railway Clearing House and the railways' relationships with Government. The book describes the part he played in both banking and railways and also the links between these spheres not only in Britain where Glyn's was known as the Railway Bank because it held the accounts of so many railway companies, but also in Canada
