In the 1950s and 1960s new services were introduced, including mobile and drive-in banks, personal loans, innovative savings schemes and the earliest forms of cash machine.
In 1969 The Royal Bank of Scotland merged with another of Scotland’s biggest banks: National Commercial Bank of Scotland. A new holding company was created to manage the merged company's numerous bank brands, and in 1970 the businesses trading in England and Wales were united to form Williams & Glyn's Bank. One of the most visible outcomes of the reorganisation was the introduction of the daisy wheel brand which still represents the Royal Bank of Scotland today.
Meanwhile, change was also afoot among the English banks. In 1970, three of the best-known names – Westminster Bank, National Provincial Bank and its subsidiary District Bank – merged to create NatWest. It, too, introduced a new brand mark that continues to represent NatWest today.
