A few nice business loan images I found:

This is the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands.
The museum was established in 1975, and the first buildings moved here in 1976. Since then a 26 acre site has been developed, with the unique conditions of living and working in the Black Country from the mid 19th century to early 20th century.
It is off Tipton Road in Dudley.
This is The Village Centre at the Black Country Living Museum.
It has been built on the low ground at the northern end of the museum site which is surrounded on three sides by canals.
This is the Pawnbroker's.
The pawnbroker’s shop is housed in a pair of cottages rescued from Himley.
Prior to the Second World War, before the inception of state benefits, pawnshops provided one of the only means for humbler people in society to raise capital or obtain a loan to bolster their income when work was slack.
The front room of the shop displayed unredeemed pledges for sale, but if you wished to pawn an item to raise cash you entered the increased privacy of the panelled pledge room at the rear.
In the building next to the pawnshop the same proprietor runs a second-hand furniture business.
As today, most of the furniture came from bereavement clearance, but some came direct from homes where ‘something better’ had been purchased, or conversely where the owner had fallen on hard times and had to ‘hock’ their bicycle or gramophone to make ends meet.
