The Post Office Savings Bank was an important service offered by the local post office from the 1860s. In many small towns and isolated rural communities it was one of the only financial services available. Due to legislation which restricted the rights of other savings banks, by the mid-1950s the Post Office Savings Bank controlled around 80% of the personal savings market.
