Back in the days of the Big 8
Thirty-five years ago, Accountancy Age hit the streets for the first time. And 35 years ago I started work as an articled clerk with Price, Waterhouse & Co. I’d been to see Cooper Brothers, Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths & Co and Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co too, but I preferred the large china cups that PW used for its tea so I joined them.

Accountancy Age celebrates its 35th birthday this year. When we launched in 1969 we made bold claims. We pledged to ‘mark and assist the changing status of the profession, and to report on all aspects of its enhanced role as a vital part of management in Britain – management of both corporate and personal business’.
